You wouldn't happen to know how I can calculate the 'height' of the axis
(height when the long portion of the axis is horizontal)? Should be
linewidth + offset from box + ticksize + label size. I've been playing
around in AxisScale, but I haven't really gotten a firm grasp on where these
values are located.
