matplotlib priorities

Hi John,
I think it would be nice to have a few more line and marker types.
For example, DISLIN has 24 marker symbol types and 8 line types.
Perhaps one could specify (perhaps in points) the length of the dashes and the spacing between them for dashed line types and perhaps even specify the pattern of dashes, dots and spaces, but maybe I'm a line type control-freak. Actually, what I'd really like is for the ratio of dashes to the breaks between them to be changed. A 3 or 4 to 1 ratio looks nicer than what I'm seeing with GTKAgg (about 1 to 1), but others' opinions may vary, hence the control-freak suggestion.

Subject: [Matplotlib-users] matplotlib priorities

Perry Greenfield has spent a fair amount of time talking with me and
the folks working at stsci on matplotlib to come up with a set of
goals and priorities for near term development, and has thoroughly
revamped the goals page

We hope that this page will stay much more current than the last page,
which grew fairly static as most of the goals at the time the page was
created were fulfilled.

Take a look over the list and speak up for anything we may have
