As you know you must set 'shape' attribute
of your coordinate arrays used to generate a pcolor plot.
Imagine your arrays had points (Cartesian position vectors)
all over the place at completely random points in space.
The 'shape' of this plot depends on max and min values
of each coordinate. I believe Mathematica plotting
would automagically calculate these max and min values
and set plot ranges for you. This is why 'shape'
attribute of Matplotlib/Numarray seems awkward
and unnecessary to me unless I'm missing something.
You should not have ability to set 'shape' your self.
It seems it wouldn't make any sense to *change* the
shape since that is decided by range of your values
