I don't think we need to worry too much about this -- IMO using a plotting
package like matplotlib to obtain matlab-like functions (rather than numpy,
scipy or whatever) is pretty yucky anyway and people can easily use either an
``import as`` or a a fully qualified name (``matplotlib.mlab`` or
``mlabwrap.mlab``).
