Greetings Thomas, and Jason,
Thanks for the encouragement! I have replied to Ludwig Schwardt, the
developer of the mpl5canvas backend. I had a couple of comments in my
email. I think the first thing that should be established is whether the
functionality that you want could be implemented in static code, and if
so, we should implement it in static code, or do it via the
kernel/server. In the latter case, one would only have to re-write parts
of Ludwig's backend, and pass the plot request to the ipython kernel.
As for the place of the backend, I have read somewhere that matplotlib
wants to do away with the plethora of backends, so I didn't even
consider raising the issue there. Moreover, if we embark on implementing
the backend "in-house", it could be implemented in a way that most suits
