problem with set in current svn HEAD

hello,
I must be doing something stupid.... I am trying to test the snippets of code in http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users_guide_0.90.0.pdf p.29, and I get :
[cohen@...142... python]$ python
Python 2.5 (r25:51908, Apr 10 2007, 10:29:13)
[GCC 4.1.2 20070403 (Red Hat 4.1.2-8)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from pylab import *
>>> subplot(211)
<matplotlib.axes.Subplot instance at 0x9c5412c>
>>> plot([1,2,3],[1,2,3])
[<matplotlib.lines.Line2D instance at 0x9c5a8ac>]
>>> set(gca(), xticklabels=[])
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: set() does not take keyword arguments

Can somebody help me understand what goes wrong here?
thanks,
Johann

Hi,

I think you must type :
set(gca(), ‘xticklabels’, [])
