Somewhat in his spirit, here is one variation on Kit's style:

... yline(0, lstyle(grid) lw(*2)) xline(0, lstyle(grid) lw(*2))

That is,

1. You can make the extra -yline()- and -xline()- have the same style as
your grid lines.

2. But you can also make them a little more prominent by changing the
width.


Very nice. One thing that you might want to add is something like lcolor(gs13) to make the axes just a bit more prominent than the rest of the grid. If you want them even more noticeable, use a number lower than 13, and v.v.
