not really.  One of us (R core) has had this on his todo list for a while.
But then several of us don't see a big need, since hatching nowadays is
replaced by colors in many (I'd say most) situations.

If you send us the necessary patches to the R source code,
it will be in one of the development versions "real soon".  Note that R is
a GNU project relying on volunteer work from all over the world...
