ContourSet not an Artist?

Hi,

I just noticed that ContourSet only inherits ScalarMappable and
ContourLabeller, neither of which is an Artist subclass, which means
ContourSet is not an Artist. (And is why it does not have a remove()
method). Anyone have any idea why and if we should correct that? I'm
not sure what the ramifications would be.

It's just historical. Should every plotting command return an Artist, simple or compound? If so, I suspect contouring is not the only thing that will need refactoring. I haven't investigated what would be required.

Ryan, was there a particular use case in which you found that CS was
not an Artist to be a limitation, or were you just asking out of
curiosity?

Looking at adding a remove method, per another thread. I was confused by the lack of standard machinery, and wasn't sure if I should just add remove method or make it an artist.
