In the future, it is best to include a minimal example in your email to the
user list.  tinyurls (and SO posts) are almost certainly going to rot.

`Line2D` draws lines connecting the points in the order you pass them in.
If mpl sorted your data based on the x values then you could never plot
anything was not a single valued function f(x).
