Hi, I was wondering about the status of polar plots --

The work in progress claim is a bit overstated. If you search the
user's mailing list for polar, you'll see some code that was posted
that essentially provides a poorman's polar plot. It makes plot that
roughly do the right things vis-a-vis polar, but to "do it right (tm)"
you'll need to implement a polar axis class, derived from the Axis
base class (eg use patch.Circle to draw the theta axis). A polar
transform class is defined in the _transforms module. Among the other
changes, you'll want to set the default transform for polar axes.
If you decide you want to jump in, let me know and I'll write a more
long winded email about what I think is involved, bearing in mind that
I haven't actually implemented any of this code so my comments should
be taken with a grain of salt.
I'm not clear about the context of your mention of imshow and pcolor;
could you elaborate?
