Is there an update on: "Matplotlib 1.1.0 animation vs. contour plots"?

Hello List,

Apparently, it is not straightforward to make an animation of contour plots.

I found a discussion (and work-around solution including punching ducks) on the list through this link: punch the QuadContourSet until it behaves like an Artist

Has there been a fix since then? It would be nice if contours work with animations like the other plots.

If not, no big deal.
