I agree with the initiator of this request. Hatching should not be
supported with a library but as a an alternative to fill patterns. Also
fill patterns do not well export to postscript and other vector formats. A
true hatching seems to me the only working alternative and it is *really*
required for technical illustrations!

Also I think it would be rather simple to implement. The parameters would
* hatch distance
* hatch angle

The line width, style, and colour could be inherited from the objects line

I beg anybody who can do it to implement it, since it is really a simple
feature with a high usability improvement for Incskape.

Thank you
