[yt-dev] Transfer Function Plots

I'd prefer it if the transfer function plot were split into two separate frames.  Right now, it's easy to think that the black background color image contains opacity information since the frame is plotted with a y axis.  I'd prefer it if only the white line was plotted with a y axis and the black background image was plotted in a separate frame like a color bar with no y axis.  This would also let the user see the tick marks for the opacity plot much more easily.

In general, I like plotting the transfer function like a color bar (sort of like Stella Offner's image on the yt homepage [http://yt-project.org/img/offner_etal.png]).
