I don't know if this is possible, but if you really need
interactive/automatic functionality like this, have you looked into
Enthought's IPython Chaco interface?


Seems suited for this kind of thing.  The drawback is that chaco is a
completely different library from matplotlib; however, simple commands like
setting limits and such are easy enough to figure out from the API
