Hi there,

I'm wondering whether there is an easy way to append an additional subplot to an existing figure without losing the subplots already drawn.

Currently if I do something like 
>>> subplot(211); plot(...); subplot(212); plot(...);

Then I get inconsistent drawing results if I try something like:
>>> subplot(313); plot(...);


Yes, it is "possible", but it can be messy to do so.  Also, which version of matplotlib are you using?  Is there a particular reason why you don't know the number of plots ahead of time?
