This was due to, and not fixed by #12222, because that only focused on shape primitives.  

The fix is most likely to add an option in the decorators of all the commands to put aspect ratio back to 1 for those things.

Critical because we have in the past long discussed this; I would like to make it blocker since

This should plot concentric circles centered at the origin::

        sage: x,y = var('x,y')
        sage: contour_plot(x^2+y^2-2,(x,-1,1), (y,-1,1))

doesn't look like circles, but I suppose that they are circles...

Apply trac_12581-aspect_ratio.patch.

This might depend on #9744. I don't think it touches the same parts of, but if you get a problem applying, then it does. Note that we don't need the option for implicit_plot because it always gives a region plot or a contour plot.

For reviewing; please test whether this breaks anything from #11963. I don't quite understand what the 'correct' summation behavior is yet. I assume that this works okay, though.

And a question; should it be 1.0 instead of 1?

It looks like your patch applies over #9744 with a bit of fuzz, but it doesn't apply to a clean 5.0.beta5, so I changed the dependencies. I looked through the live docs for contour_plot with the patch applied and things look much better now. I don't see any problems. I haven't looked at whether anything from #11963 breaks yet..

FWIW, there are 6 places in the Sage library .py files where aspect_ratio=1.0 is used, and 46 places where aspect_ratio=1 is used (thank you, ack).

Okay, I updated it to officially depend on #9744 without fuzz.
