Such a shame... Anyway, I'm glad to learn horizontal bars are possible, I'll try it.

Thanks for your answers.

Horizontal bar is possible, although i'm not sure it fits your need.

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/barh_demo.html

Anyhow, with the current mpl, I guess it is much easy to make the
horizontal bars with rectangle patches (in case barh does not do what
you want), rather than trying to rotate the legend.
