Changing edge colour of scatterplot

I'm trying to draw a scatter plot where each point is a different colour and
is only a single pixel. Unfortunately at the minute, while I can change the
colour and size, I haven't been able to remove the edges of the markers and
my single pixel becomes the colour of the edge. I've attached some sample
code below. Can anyway see what I've done wrong? It currently just gives
back an error.

And a related question. Is using scatter the best way to draw a plot of
single pixels? Or would it be more efficient to use one of the more
primitive classes to do this?

fig = plt.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(111)

x=[1,2,3,4]
y=[2,3,5,4]
s=1
c=[0.4, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5]

prop=dict(edgecolors='none')
ax.scatter(x,y, s=s, c=c, **prop)
plt.show()

Your code works as expected with the current svn head. If you're using
older version of mpl, can you try to update and see if it solves the
problem?
If you're using recent version of mpl, please post an error message you got.

matplotlib basically creates a vector-based plot, and a notion of
"single-pixel" is not very meaningful. While it makes some sense for
raster output formats like png, but still, the result depends on the
dpi of your output. Note that unit for the parameter "s" in the
scatter function is in points(**2). 1 points corresponds to one pixel
in dpi=72. With higher dpi, the scatter points will occupy more than a
single pixel.
