# [Matplotlib-users] grouping in a legend

Hi,

I'm wondering if there's any way to group several items (i.e. handles) in a
legend with a single label.  Ideally I'd like to use something like a curly
brace in the way one can in LaTeX using \right{.  The use case is where you
have several curves that share some characteristic and others that are
different.
This could be pushing legend beyond its limits.  And of course I could just
repeat the same label several times, but I thought I'd ask if anyone had
come up with some clever way of doing this.

Regards,
Jon
