stretching letters in plots

Hi,

Is there a way to stretch letters like in this example
http://weblogo.berkeley.edu/examples.html using mpl?
I don't exactly want to reproduce sequence logos, but I would like to
'scale' a letter arbitrarily in height, changing its color and keeping
it's width fixed.
I didn't see things like that in mpl, yet. But I thought if somebody
knows a way, I'd rather use the tool I like.

No, nothing short of adding some code combining agg transformations
with freetype pixel buffers which would probably require some
additional extension code to support. So you will probably be better
off with another tool for something like this for now.
