Axes scaling

Hi all,

I was wondering if there's been any work done on creating an
auto-scaling option such that, for example, when I create a legend off
of my plot, the figure area automatically scales to included my legend,
and I don't have to manually tune parameters in the add_axes method?

As a reference:

I would save time and really appreciate it if I didn't have to go
through a series of re-renders to get my plots to display.
