How was the name Axes chosen for the Axes component? :)
It did confuse me for at least two days while I was first learning
mpl. It's in my thoughts again as I'm writing some wrapper classes for
it; what were the alternatives considered, even after the fact? :)

Much of the MPL API was modeled after the Matlab API, so you may have to
However: an "axis" is a single thing -- "the x axis". "axes" is the
plural of axis, so when you have a thing with both an x and y axis, is
is an "axes".
