hi all,

i am drawing a 2x3 set of subplots. i want it to eliminate the second

subplot of the first row and instead make the first subplot on the

first row take up two plots worth of space, i.e. have it so that the

first subplot takes up 2,3,1 and 2,3,2. In matlab, the command would

be something like subplot(2,3,[1,2]).

what is the way to do this in matplotlib? i have a lot of code

structured subplots and subplots_adjust, and i really want to avoid

switching to drawing my own axes if possible, as in this example:

http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/axes_grid/simple_axes_divider1.html

switching to this would be very complicated -- is there a way to do

this while still using the subplot command?

thanks.
