I really like using matplotlib to create quality plots, and it seems to have an option for just about everything. However, one thing that is not easy to change is the location of minor tick marks. To set major tick mark locations, one can simply use the "xticks" command. And now we can atleast turn on the minor tick marks with the "minorticks_on()" command.
But, is there any way to implement something similar to "xticks" for minor tick marks? Even better would be a feature that allowed the user to simply specify the number of minor tick marks that are evenly spaced between the major tick marks?
