Made xtick and ytick separate props in rc
made pos=None the default for tick formatters rather than 0 to
indicate "not supplied"
Removed "feature" of minor ticks which prevents them from
overlapping major ticks. Often you want major and minor ticks at
the same place, and can offset the major ticks with the pad. This
could be made configurable
Changed the internal structure of contour.py to a more OO style.
Calls to contour or contourf in axes.py or pylab.py now return
a ContourSet object which contains references to the
LineCollections or PolyCollections created by the call,
as well as the configuration variables that were used.
The ContourSet object is a "mappable" if a colormap was used.
Added a clip_ends kwarg to contourf. From the docstring:
* clip_ends = True
If False, the limits for color scaling are set to the
minimum and maximum contour levels.
True (default) clips the scaling limits. Example:
if the contour boundaries are V = [-100, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 100],
then the scaling limits will be [-100, 100] if clip_ends
is False, and [-3, 3] if clip_ends is True.
Added kwargs linewidths, antialiased, and nchunk to contourf. These
are experimental; see the docstring.
kw argument order changed;
if mappable arg is a non-filled ContourSet, colorbar() shows
lines instead hof polygons.
if mappable arg is a filled ContourSet with clip_ends=True,
the endpoints are not labelled, so as to give the
correct impression of open-endedness.
Changed LineCollection.get_linewidths to get_linewidth, for
