yaxis labels on both sides

Some of my plots are very wide. I'd like Y axis labels on both sides so that it's clearer to read the bars towards the right hand side.

I can change the ticks with yaxis.set_ticks_position("both") but there doesn't seem to be a similar call for labels. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Peter

I don't think there is a direct support for this in mpl and I guess
only way is to adjust the parameters of each ticks.

def set_ticks_both(axis):
    ticks = list( axis.majorTicks ) # a copy
    ticks.extend( axis.minorTicks )

    for t in ticks:
        t.tick1On = True # tick marker on left (or bottom)
        t.tick2On = True # tick marker on right (or top)
        t.label1On = True # tick label marker on left (or bottom)
        t.label2On = True # tick label on right (or top)

set_ticks_both(ax.yaxis)

Maybe with the new spines support in 0.99 this could be an attribute/method on the spine?
