[R] Lattice barchart with different fill pattern

I am new to lattice plots.
I want to make a barchart with 10 and more levels.
I need to use a grey scale for printing purposes.
The problem is that with 10 or more levels in factors it is very
difficult to distinguish each level in the plot and legend, since the
greys are very similar (some levels have value of zero and don't appear).
Here is an example of my problem:
df <- data.frame("year" = rep(1996:2005,10),
"spe" = c(rep("aa",10), rep("bb",10), rep("cc",10), rep("dd",10),
rep("ee",10), rep("ff",10), rep("gg",10),
"value" = sample( c(0:10),100 , replace=TRUE)
barchart( value ~ factor(year), groups = spe, data=df, stack = TRUE,
auto.key = list(points = FALSE, rectangles = TRUE, space =
par.settings = list(superpose.polygon = list(col =
gray.colors(10) ), scales = list(cex=0.8, rot=c(90,0,0)))
I was thinking that by changing the fill pattern, the different levels
could be better distinguished.
I have read the lattice help and searched in the mailing list archives,
but did no find any solution for lattice barchart.
Is there a way to change the fill pattern of the bar levels or any other
approach to help in the identification of the different levels in the
