Great -- do you have class notes? I will be using the same
combination in a class I am teaching to biologists this fall and am
working on a manuscript with Fernando Perez, basically an introduction
to scientific computing in python.

Take a look at the release notes at
http://matplotlib.sf.net/whats_new.html for release 0.72. We improved
the way we do multiscale axes and shared axis axes, and the interface
changed somewhat. See examples/shared_axis_demo.py,
examples/two_scales.py and examples/ganged_plots.py. The examples are
available in a zip file on the website.

ax1 = subplot(111)
t = arange(0.01, 10.0, 0.01)
s1 = exp(t)
plot(t, s1, 'b-')
ax2 = twinx() ### <- this is the new way
s2 = sin(2*pi*t)
plot(t, s2, 'r.')

I hope it's your imagination
