This is basically the best approach. You can make the default
subplots_adjust(left=.1) or something like that to give yourself
extra room. matplotlib will fall over to exponential ticking above
10^4, so 1000 is pretty much your worst case. Just make sure you can
fit the ylabel on this case and you should be OK
pylab.scatter([1000, 5000], [1000, 5000])
Let us know when the new plots are up!
