  I agree with the gist of the discussion here ("par(lwd)" to change lwd
globally, otherwise it just affects lines).  One detail worth thinking
about is that a global linewidth change in PostScript (setlinewidth) will
also affect the linewidths used, e.g., in drawing plotting characters
(which could get very ugly as a result).

  I'm glad to see folks are working on lwd; in my (alpha-2) version of R
linewidth is mostly not implemented, and I was wondering whether I should
dig in and work on it or whether I should wait 'til the prophesied Big
Changes in the graphics code happened and the dust settled ...  (For now,
I've just been hacking the postscript _post facto_.)
