Comment (by annakrat):

 Thanks, I tested it and it works very well. I have couple of suggestions:

 * if you compare the default before and after this change, the white
 border is now transparent, so that should be changed back. Also if you
 test categorical data, the black/white border is switched (inner is black,
 should be white). The current default legend size is wider than the
 previous one, that should be fixed as well.

 * drawing ticks should be optional, implement for example '-t' flag.
 Question is if it should draw the ticks by default or not. Let's switch
 them off by default for now.

 * the vertical centering of the labels and ticks is not quite perfect, I
 wonder if it could be improved

 * I thought more about the names of the new parameters and decided
 `label_values` and `label_step` would fit more to `labelnum`

 * the `-c` flag should always hide all the numbers, it is actually useful
 mostly with categorical data

 * I think when option `label_value` or `label_step` is used, `labelnum`
 should be ignored. So the min max values won't be displayed. I hope we
 could get some feedback from other users what kind of behavior would be
 more natural.
