Why do you say it's wrong?  Note that in mpl, (0,0) is (bottom left),
not (upper,left).  So this is saying that the yellow dot at 10,20
(data coords) is 576 pixels up from the bottom and 432 pixels over
from the left.

ok maybe it is. But then I need the size of the entire figure written to a file. How can I find out the pixel-size of the entire figure, inclusive every title, axis, labels...
