VIS: DataFrame.plot(kind='kde') does not display the legend. #4216

I would like to have the legend when I display the 'kde' (also called 'dentity') of a DataFrame. The plot method works well with the other kind options (i.e. bar, barh and line).

Following piece of code:

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
df = pd.DataFrame({'X': np.random.randn(500),
                   'Y': 2. + np.random.randn(500)*0.75})
# then

does not display the legend for X and Y (even if I set legend=True which is the default value of the legend parameter). Note: I'm on master > 0.12rc1

Best regards,
