What is creating a colorbar? My usual coding style is such that any
functions I make to do complicated plots do not do any more than is
necessary. All axis limits, title setting and colorbar making are left for
the caller of the plotting function.

P.S. - Furthermore, I *really* like using the axes_grid1 toolkit because I
can specify if I want space pre-allocated for colorbars. This way, when I
create my colorbar, I can pass the pre-allocated axes object that was made
just for the colorbar.
