Hatching linewidth?

Hi,

I am trying to create a hatched region, with a "diagonal lines" hatch pattern. When using the PS backend, the hatch lines come out very narrow. Is there a way to increase the thickness of the hatch lines? I am using mpl version 1.0.1.

I think this question has been asked before (e.g., in 2008), but I couldn't find an answer.

Thanks!

P.S. I apologize if this message arrives twice.

Ok, further searching led to an answer for the PDF backend. The linewidth is hard-coded to 0.1pt.

I assume it is similar for PS, because the output looks the same when I use both.

Also, it seems there is an open issue on github (for the PDF case anyway):
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/235

For now, I will just use a solid color fill instead, and await an updated hatch capability!

Thanks,
Jeff
