comment Looking for an extensive gallery of Mathematica's 2D graphics
@MikeHoneychurch: fine: it's the Matlab-inspired Matplotlib library for Python. This library is considered the "standard" graphics library for Python, and the Python world is generally mighty impressed by it, which means that there's little hope for anything better. Matplotlib started out as a side-project hack (by its author's own description), and it "grew" into the Python standard. IMO, the design of something as important as a language's representation of graphics needs more careful thought than what went into Matplotlib.

... parametrized with {Sin[u] + Cos[v], Cos[u], Sin[v]}, because with this new function the proportions of the underlying 3D graphics are different.

comment How to scale one axis of a 3D plot?
Thanks, but no, this is not what I am looking for. The desired solution should be invariant with respect to changes in the proportions of the underlying 3D graphics. In contrast, the solution you propose requires inspecting the proportions of the underlying base graphics, and using this information to compute the required BoxRatios to produce the desired scaling. IOW, the code above would fail to properly scale the y-axis if, for example, the function being plotted were...
