I've pushed the changes to __go_draw_axes__.m, but when I moved on to 
graphics.h.in I noticed other files were referencing the {l,u,xl,xu}data 

Specifically, I see references to {l,u,xl,xu}data in graphics.cc, graphics.h, 
graphics-props.cc, and graphics.h.in.

Before I begin a (possibly) futile attempt to remove these references, I 
thought I'd ask for advice as I'm functionally illiterate in c/c++.


p.s. I don't mind making a feeble attempt at changing these files, but having 
someone more expert in c/c++ do it might be wise.
