I haven't gotten to try out matplotlib in paraview yet, but the reason
matplotlib was excluded from wrapping is because no classes in it
should be exposed in the language bindings (the mathtext classes
should be used instead). If this is preventing the module from playing
nicely with paraview it can be removed.
