A minor suggestion: increase the the savefig.dpi when building the docs. 
The examples look quite bad, especially the text looks very unsharp.

Another suggestion for 2.0: use another default font. Maybe Bitstream 
Vera Sans just gets badly rendered and the freetype/agg combination of 
matplotlib, but it looks unsharp for smaller fontsizes. Even for bigger 
sizes it is still not a very nice font.
Tbh I don't know if there are usable free fonts as an alternative,
but maybe someone does know.
