[Kst] pixel type marker missing in Kst 2.x (as opposed to 1.6/1.7) ?

Hello Barth, it seems I've misspelled your address, here's a new try...

Good morning Barth,

thanks for getting back to me!

As for the feature, in 2.x there are only larger points available now, i.e. complex markers such as squares, circles, and characters, but no 'pixel' marker. This was well available in the 1.x series.

With Python's matplotlib, you'd get this marker style like this.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(20,20))
ax1 = fig.add_subplot(111)
ax1.plot(range(1024), range(1024), ',') # <=== mind the comma!
fig.suptitle('fig title')
ax1.set_title('ax title')
ax1.set_xlim(left=None, right=None)
ax1.set_ylim(bottom=None, top=None)
ax1.legend(loc='best', numpoints=1)

It is incredibly usefull if you need maximum resolution in order to prevent dots from overlapping. In our case, if you test a CCD for dirt or broken pixels and display this on a screen, it is the only way that makes sense...

Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated!
