Committed with changes:

- Rename MPL OPTION to PLOTTING (match setup.py:extras_require key name)
- Add TEST_DEPENDS/test target when one is available

I also recommend the following:

- Ask upstream to distribute source distribution to PyPI.
- Consider adding all optional features (OPTIONS) to OPTIONS_DEFAULT) for package users.
- Add option for additional optional features (including any min versions):

  * Interactive Brokers (needs IbPy and benefits greatly from an installed pytz)
  * Visual Chart (needs a fork of comtypes until a pull request is integrated in the release and benefits from pytz)
  * Oanda (needs oandapy) (REST API Only - v20 did not support streaming when implemented)
  * TA-Lib indicator support (needs python ta-lib / check the docs)

Upstream should add the above optional features to setup.py:extras_require as plotting is.
