eps without figure frame

The standard trick is to set the figure facecolor and edgecolor to be
the same. For whatever reason, a linewidth of 0 is not handled
consistently across ps drivers.

setp(figurePatch, facecolor=somecolor, edgecolor=somecolor, linewidth=0)

should work.

In the PostScript model (and thus also PDF), a linewidth of 0 means "1
pixel at the rendered resolution," not that the line is invisible.

The standard trick is to set the figure facecolor and edgecolor to be
the same. For whatever reason, a linewidth of 0 is not handled

setp(figurePatch, facecolor=somecolor, edgecolor=somecolor, linewidth=0)

Indeed the frame line is not drawn in that case, but it is still beeing filled.
To prevent filling I tried:

f.figurePatch.fill = False
setp(f.figurePatch, facecolor='black', edgecolor='black', linewidth=0)

but now the frame line is back again - in white.

Any other ideas?
