I don't think this polar axes project is a step in the right direction.
Matlab has split the complicated tasks of axes objects into single objects:
lines, text (graphics primitives), ticks (ruller objects) etc ... and the
classdef "axes" objects is built from an aggregation of those objects.

ATM, our classdef support is not sufficient to go the HG2 graphics system
route (I can extend on this if necessary), but IMO what we need is to
disentangle the current axes object mess and try to mimic Matlab (at leat
formally) *not* to add new super-complicated low level objects.
