What's the status of the py3k branch?

OK, if there are no objections I will start making the appropriate changes to the code and the documentation.

That's a good point. Until fairly recently, interactive behavior worked
across backends only via ipython magic, so I think the non-interactive
default had a solid historical rationale. Now, however, we could
probably make interactive mode the startup default for interactive
backends without causing any problems. I agree that this would be more
intuitive and more familiar to people coming from matlab.

Probably right -- this was a design decision made early on when I did
not see a good way around the problem that the idle drawing across
backends now solves. There will probably be some unintended
consequences of changing the default, but as long as we document it
prominently and provide a way for people to change the behavior to the
old wan in their rc, it is probably a good idea to make this change.
