Hey Gordon,
ipython-py2 is the last reverse dependency (in testing, non RC-buggy)
of matplotlib.

It looks like the package only declares a build-depend on mpl, while
the binary packages dont.

Do you think it would be possible to remove that build-depends (my
impression is that it wouldnt diminish much the functionalities, as
the bin packages are not depending on it, so it's probably a matter of
documentation or tests?) so that i can remove the python2 version of
matplotlib from Debian?

that in turn would allow many other packages to be removed as well.
