Saved PDFs default to 4/3 aspect ratio even if do subplots_adjust?

I measured the displayed Matplotlib PDF on the screen and noticed it
has a 4/3 (1.333...) aspect ratio by default.

Is it EXACTLY 4/3? Even if I do:

pylab.figure().subplots_adjust(left = EXTRA_ROOM,
                               bottom = EXTRA_ROOM)

???

(Why doesn't the subplots_adjust command seem to mess up the default aspect
ratio?? )

The size of the figure can be adjusted using

figure(figsize=(width, height))

subplots_adjust merely adjusts the margins between multiple subplots within the same figure.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. subplots_adjust(left=.., bottom=...) seems to have an effect on a
single plot too. It lets you add extra room for axis labels.

It *must* mess up the
aspect ratio of the plot since the axis labels are now "stealing" extra space
right?
