[Matplotlib-users] legend(loc='best') a bit off

I am pretty sure that 'best' is picking from one of the 9 positions [(top,
middle, bottom)X(left, center, right)] not picking a continuous position.

Fixing this would be useful and a pretty major new feature.  It is not
clear to me what the best algorithm for this would be.  The obvious thing
is to run N more refinements around each point, but hopefully there is some
computational geometry that I do not know.
