Annotation 'data offset'

All,

I have just submitted a patch to the Annotation class that
allows specification of a ‘data offset’ frame for the text
coordinate. This allows you to specify a data point to annotate and an offset
that will stay the same regardless of scale. Please let me know if this should
be given a different name (like ‘offset’ or ‘point offset’,
etc).

Hey James,

thanks a lot for this patch. As you know, it has been on my TODO list :slight_smile:

I made one minor change, which is to rename 'data offset' to 'offset
points' since 'data' in the annotation coords refers to the native
coordinate system. Since we have 'axes points' and the like, I
thought 'offset points' would be most consistent.

Anyhow, very useful!
