This doesn't quite answer the question set. The lines 
are large, not small.

One alternative: 

-beamplot- from SSC plots horizontal dot 
plots using a beam and fulcrum graphical metaphor. 
The fulcrum is by default the mean -- justifying
the centre of gravity idea -- but can be the median
if desired.
