[R] lwd - Windows

Dear all

Is there a way or trick in windows to plot a line width that is not an 
integer i.e 1.5?
I am aware that the documentation for window devices states "Line widths as 
controlled by par(lwd=) are in multiples of the pixel size, and multiples < 
1 are silently converted to 1" but I was wondering if there is a workaround 

Also, IMHO the documentation for lwd in par may need some clarification 
since it states:
"The line width, a positive number, defaulting to 1. The interpretation is 
device-specific, and some devices do not implement line widths less than 
one."  Perhaps it would be useful for the users to describe the behavior for 
the most important devices, and also to state that the number is an integer 
(at least for windows) and not just a positive number?
