errorbar uplims and lolims reversed?

Hi all,
I just tried to use the uplims=True option in matplotlib errorbars to plot
some upper limits, and it turns out that the arrow is upward directed...
Now, an upper limit should mean that the measurement of a certain quantity
has excluded all higher values and that the true value may be smaller than
the limit set, i.e. the arrow should be directed downward.
Isn't it?
same thing for the lolims option, in that case arrows should be directed

or is there something I'm missing?
