The next sentence (that you snipped) afirms what you said.
<quote>
Of course this is a minor example and I could just write the window function
myself and then use it in Matplotlib
</quote>

The details of my off-the-cuff example would probably be better addressed by
the Matplotlib folks.  (i.e. why they don't have builtin functions for more
windows).

You can see how it's all very confusing to someone new.
"Matplotlib can plot a spectrogram but I need to use a window function from
SciPy because Matplotlib only supports NumPy and NumPy doesn't have the one
I want?"

You get the idea.
