Autoscaling after removing lines.

Hy all,

I recently had a pretty hard time trying to figure out how to properly
autoscale a plot after removing a line (see attached script). Finally
I found at [1] that I have to explicitly refresh the axes dataLim
before autoscaling.

In [1] John Hunter says that computing the proper dataLim can be
complicated if there are several types of artists in the axes, like
polygons and collections an that "[it] would be useful to have an Axes
method like "auto_datalim" to for the datalim to readjust to all the
current data."

My question is whether such a function has been implemented. Besides
any suggestions about how to deal with this are welcome. I just need
to adjust to lines right now but this may change in the future.

Best regards

Seems like Axes.relim is what I was looking for. It does not take
collections into account but I don't need that for now.
