Mike, John, or anyone else who works directly with Ticks:
I think you are the only ones who have worked with the code I suggest changing as in the attached diff. It looks to me like the three *Tick methods, set_view_interval(), get_minpos(), get_data_interval(), are unused and unlikely ever to have been or to be used. I particularly object to the first of these because I don't think a Tick has any business changing the view interval. The other two look like clutter, harmless except insofar as they make it harder to understand the code. If some projection actually does end up needing the functionality in any of these methods, it is still available via *Tick.axes.xaxis.* etc.
Am I missing something? If not, I will commit this to the trunk. This is a case where I think immediate surgery is better than a deprecation process.
