There is a slight inconsistency in that plot_date and plot have
different default behavior, you can control the plot_date marker with
the dictionary; note that the linestyle and marker are independent
# use no marker
# use a square marker

pylab.py is for the most part a thin wrapper of functionality of
axes.py. Eg, pylab.plot calls ax.plot and pylab.imshow calls
ax.imshow. So if you find a problem with a pylab docstring, you can
usually find the original function in axes.py and fix that.
If you are on a win32 platform, which I think wyou are, you can install
ming32 and run a diff command like the one suggested by Charles Moad
