Remove bokeh matplotlib compatibility #1239
As suggested in #1218 this removes the BokehMPLWrapper plot class and support for Distribution, Bivariate, and TimeSeries Elements. I was initially hesitant to remove this entirely in 1.7 but with the amount of warnings these currently generate and other restrictions on these plot types, I think just removing them is the correct thing to do. Hopefully we can readd Distribution and Bivariate support in 2.0 as part of the statistical elements module (#1200).
I share your worries about backwards compatibility but
As we are removing functionality, I do think we definitely ought to get the corresponding statistical elements into 2.0. This is something we should mention in the CHANGELOG to try and re-assure anyone using these things that this functionality will be restored in a better way soon.
