The axis('equal') does not fix the scales, and place the plot in the
center (as far as I know this mimics matlab behavior). The
axis('scaled') is a variation on this theme that does fix the scale
and puts the plot in the lower left hand corner. Obviously, many more
permutations are possible. If many people think another pylab option
would be crucial we can always add one more.

When looking at the little code example below
it can be seen see that you have to mix programming
paradigms to disable autoscaling:
ax = subplot(111)
Wouldn't another 'axis' option make the
whole thing more consistent?
