And yet, we still allow for saving to jpegs. Also, matplotlib is also able to do imshow(), pcolor() and other rasterized drawings, so we aren’t restricted to just line drawings.
Nils, the answer is “no, we don’t support webp – yet”. There is no reason why we can’t eventually do so, and patches will always be welcomed. I just wouldn’t expect it anytime soon.

No. It seems to be a method for lossy compression of photographs and
therefore not likely to be useful for line drawings - or what did you
have in mind?
