Indeed. Isn't the question about how to extract the data points for
the curve from the 'contour' object in matplotlib, in the general
case? Unfortunately I don't have the answer to that, but maybe
introspection of the object would lead to an answer. From the API doc
I see a mysterious attribute called 'level'.
