I'd think that matplotlib's defaults are defaults for a good reason.

Agreed, but not a good *mathematical* reason. It is a good *data analysis* reason (appropriate for mpl), which is not the same thing. I can't think of a single mathematics textbook, talk, or other purely mathematical setting in which I've ever seen an offset of that type. Axes are always when the variables = 0, end of story. I'd rather add a note in the docs saying how to change this option. Naturally, we can do that anyway, and in fact should include several examples of the type of usage where that would be helpful. Nonetheless, especially since Sage does not seem to be used very heavily for data applications (pandas, numpy, or others long since filling that gap), I would also recommend changing that default. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "sage-support" group.
