Yes, indeed, thanks! I was in fact just working on preparing a patch
again "vanilla" 1.0.0 to be included in Debian package, but then I
realized that I have to provide those sample data, downloading them
from the internet before the build and ship them in the debian
customization of the released tarball... then I stop.
What's the plan about 1.0.1? is it going to be release soon? will it
include the sample_data dir in the released tarball, so that we can
set examples.download = False, and examples.directory =
"..../sample_data" inside the tarball? that would really help getting
mpl 1.0.* into Debian.
