Offset axes, mimicks Seaborn's 'despine' option for plotting

In Python/Seaborn, there is the option to offset the x and y axis at the origin. This 'despine' pulls the x-axis down a bit, and the y-axis left, so that data that are close to either one become more visible. This function mimics the behaviour in a matlab plot, by changing the axis limits and covering the origin of the axes with a white line.
