It would be nice to have. Since the patch edge seemed to be using a "round" style and I wanted "miter", my workaround was just to use a separate step plot to overlay the outline. But for more general cases (e.g., a bar plot not created from a histogram or if I wanted a "bevel" style), I'm not sure how I would do it.

Are the edges of the rectangles returned by plt.bar() supposed to conform

I have not been able to change the joinstyle using this method in versions 1.0.0
(linux, gtkagg and tkagg) or 1.0.1 (os x, tkagg). I can send a minimal example
script if requested.
The bar rectangles are Patch object outlines, not Line2D objects, and
solid_joinstyle is not presently supported by patches, as far as I can see.
I suppose it probably should be supported, though. Do you agree?
