I support this move as well as changing the name.  Something short and punchy.

Hi all,

I'd like to propose we change from "jet" as our default colormap to

I've attached sample images of the same simulation -- I think
bds_highcontrast (designed by our very own Britton, nearly two years
ago now) is better looking and is easier to discern differences in.
I've provided a patch that should make this change here:


It applies to trunk.  If this goes through, we'll also make our plots
slightly better distinguished, too, because this is a homegrown
colormap.  (We also have the "kamae" colormap, created by Tune Kamae,
that isn't in matplotlib and that I think is criminally underused

Also, maybe it should be aliased as something in addition to
"bds_highcontrast"?  Another name?
