Unsquish Pandas/Matplotlib bar chart x labels

For a line plot, Matplotlib intelligently chooses x axis ticks and labels. But for bar charts, it blindly tries to print one for each bar, regardless of how many bars there are or how small they are. This can result in labels overprinting each other.

To see an example and the corresponding solution, see my IPython Notebook Solving x axis overprinting on Pandas/Matplotlib bar charts on GitHub.
