rotated axes within figure.

Hello,

(sorry if you get this message twice. I originally posted to the old
sourceforge list)

How can I add an axes to a figure, but specify the transform from axes
coordinates to figure coordinates? I want a set of axes (ticks, spines,
data, everything) that are rotated?

Figure.add_axes [1] accepts a box left-bottom-width-height axis aligned box
specification. I can't follow in the code where a transform is made out of
that, but I basically want a generic transform. Do tick labels, ticks,
titles, etc. assume that the axes-to-figure transform is purely a
translation?

Thanks,
Gustavo

Alright, this was my shot at it:
https://gist.github.com/goretkin/d34f287062f6b27e8846

It seems like the assumption of an axis-aligned axes is baked in pretty
strongly, and maybe that's for the best...

I couldn't figure out how tick lines work and why they weren't rotated. The
Line2D object has the correct transform. They are lines whose xy_data
contain only one coordinate, though something must specify the other end of
the tick line (what gives it its length otherwise?) and that is assuming
that the axes is axis-aligned.

In [4]: [l.get_xydata() for l in ax.xaxis.get_ticklines()]
Out[4]:
[array([[ 0., 0.]]),
array([[ 0., 1.]]),
array([[ 2., 0.]]),
array([[ 2., 1.]]),
array([[ 4., 0.]]),
array([[ 4., 1.]]),
array([[ 6., 0.]]),
array([[ 6., 1.]]),
array([[ 8., 0.]]),
array([[ 8., 1.]]),
array([[ 10., 0.]]),
array([[ 10., 1.]]),
array([[ 12., 0.]]),
array([[ 12., 1.]])]

For what it's worth, if you don't mind having fixed extents, you can use
axisartist for this.

There's an example of it in the axisartist examples and a simplified
version here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/21654433/325565

Hope that helps!
