        [karapatis nakis] None at the moment - I just generate the
contour with magics and try to write some code to generate hatches - not
machine specific.
        The hatches are specified in the .cli format
(http://www.cranfield.ac.uk/aero/rapid/CLI/cli_v20.html), but I don't
know of programs generating cli hatching...
