You suggest keeping the old examples around in some dark corner. Is
there some advantage you envision for doing this? I'd just as soon
remove them. Note that the documentation on the website is now
versioned, so the examples that shipped with 1.2.0 will remain live
and unchanged indefinitely. If a user wants the older gallery it
should just be there under matplotlib.org/1.2
I noted that old examples could either be kept in a dark corner, or deleted. I'm actually strongly in favor of deleting, especially since the website is versioned (nice---I didn't know this). I was afraid some people would be resistant to deleting, but I'm happy to hear that you prefer it. I'll make this preference clearer in the MEP.
