adjusting subplot sizes

Hi, I'd like to create subplots where one subplot is

    > bigger than the other, say subplot(211) should have two

The best way to do this is with "axes", not "subplot"

  from pylab import axes, show
  ax1 = axes([0.1, 0.45, 0.8, 0.5])
  ax2 = axes([0.1, 0.1, 0.8, 0.25])
