The latter should not work. The set_clim function in
cm.ScalarMappable has the signature
def set_clim(self, vmin=None, vmax=None):
Ie, it does not accept the sequence argument, though
The setp behavior is more of a bug with set_clim than it is with setp.
For properties to work with setp, we need to have all setters work
with a single argument, and so in this we would want to support a
single non-keyword argument which is a length two sequence mean
I just committed changes to support this so if you have svn access
give it a test drive.
