The new one is particularly clever. The 'plot' and 'plot3d' functions 
repeatedly ask their arguments, "If I make the plot area have these 
bounds, what bounds would you draw yourself in?", and adjust the bounds 
to fit until the arguments' answers stop changing.

I suppose this counts as an epsilon-vote for keeping backward 
compatibility. Thanks!
