Unified argument handling between hlines and vlines. Both now
take optionally a fmt argument (as in plot) and a keyword args
that can be passed onto Line2D.
Removed all references to "data clipping" in rc and lines.py since
these were not used and not optimized. I'm sure they'll be
resurrected later with a better implementation when needed.
'set' removed - no more deprecation warnings. Use 'setp' instead.
Backend developers: Added flipud method to image and removed it
from to_str. Removed origin kwarg from backend.draw_image.
origin is handled entirely by the frontend now.
