Hi everyone,

important question of the day… Is it matplotlib or Matplotlib?
I remember having this discussion with Mike at scipy 2013 and I sort
of recall that matplotlib was the correct capitalization.
I personally much prefer Matplotlib, but either way, we should make a
decision and stick to it.

The 2005 paper (http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/2005ASPC..347...91B)
seems to point with lower case matplotlib.

Once we formally agree, I'll update #7387 correspondingly.
