Hi Gaël and all,

I was thinking of this pattern remembering approach yesterday late at
night. I wonder if it be possible to transparently handle this in
library side instead of directly modifying the code on user side. Say
for instance the matplotlib side computations. I do slight
modifications on code for annotations and re-run whole script. All of
the plotting code is re-executed whether changed or not.

I will look into joblib and IncPy approaches when my code evolves into
a more complex state and especially when I bring into some
CPU-intensive computations --so far still
Modelling/comparing/plotting cycles are yet to come.

Thanks for all nice feedback.
