A user's perspective:
the current arrangement is confusing to new SciPy users.

When I started using SciPy, I naturally wanted to use
what appeared to be the SciPy graphic packages.  As I
quickly ran into their limitations, I was very frustrated
until I learned that Matplotlib was the package of choice
for SciPy users.

I now know this has been discussed many times, but 
I strongly feel that new users will be better served if they 
are strongly directed to Matplotlib and, better yet, if 
Matplotlib is packaged with SciPy.
