    The Figure instance supports callbacks through a *callbacks*
    attribute which is a :class:`matplotlib.cbook.CallbackRegistry`
    instance.  The events you can connect to are 'dpi_changed', and
    the callback will be called with ``func(fig)`` where fig is the
    :class:`Figure` instance.

    The figure patch is drawn by a the attribute

       a :class:`matplotlib.patches.Rectangle` instance

       for multiple figure images, the figure will make composite
       images depending on the renderer option_image_nocomposite

        figimage complements the axes image
        (:meth:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes.imshow`) which will be resampled
        to fit the current axes.  If you want a resampled image to

        :class:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes` with size [0,1,0,1].

        width and height.  kwargs are legal
        :class:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes` kwargs plus *projection* which
        sets the projection type of the axes.  (For backward
        compatibility, ``polar=True`` may also be provided, which is
        equivalent to ``projection='polar'``).  Valid values for
        *projection* are: %s.  Some of these projections support
        additional kwargs, which may be provided to :meth:`add_axes`::

            rect = l,b,w,h

        If the figure already has an axes with the same parameters,
        then it will simply make that axes current and return it.  If
        you do not want this behavior, eg. you want to force the
        creation of a new axes, you must use a unique set of args and
        kwargs.  The axes :attr:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes.label`
        attribute has been exposed for this purpose.  Eg., if you want
        two axes that are otherwise identical to be added to the
        figure, make sure you give them unique labels::

            fig.add_axes(rect, label='axes1')
            fig.add_axes(rect, label='axes2')

        The :class:`~matplotlib.axes.Axes` instance will be returned.

            A string containing a path to a filename, or a Python file-like object.

            If *format* is *None* and *fname* is a string, the output

        Keyword arguments:

          *dpi*: [ None | scalar > 0 ]
            The resolution in dots per inch.  If *None* it will default to
            the value ``savefig.dpi`` in the matplotlibrc file.

          *facecolor*, *edgecolor*:
            the colors of the figure rectangle

          *orientation*: [ 'landscape' | 'portrait' ]
            not supported on all backends; currently only on postscript output

            One of 'letter', 'legal', 'executive', 'ledger', 'a0' through
            'a10', 'b0' through 'b10'. Only supported for postscript

            One of the file extensions supported by the active
            backend.  Most backends support png, pdf, ps, eps and svg.

    returned.  Be sure to create an axes with equal with and height,

    Example usage::

      w, h = figaspect(2.)
      fig = Figure(figsize=(w,h))
      ax = fig.add_axes([0.1, 0.1, 0.8, 0.8])
