Tables of Stacked Bars in mpl (but not mpld3)

Here is a little feature in Matplotlib that I never saw before: stacked bar plots with tables attached. Perhaps too ugly for my Iraq Mortality stacked bar charts, but definitely handy for exploratory work.

I learned about it because it doesn’t work in `mpld3`… just one more benefit of being part of an open-source project. It would be so cool to have a `mpld3` version with some interactivity included, since interactivity can address one pitfalls of the stacked bar chart, the challenge of comparing lengths with different baselines.
