You should be able to set the markerfacecolor property to 'None' the
string, as opposed to None, the python null object. This is a bit
ugly, but None is used in the matplotlib properties to mean "do the
default, ie the rc setting". If
plot(x, y, 'o', markerfacecolor='None')
fails, please post a complete example and we'll look into it.
