This is a complicated subject (to my point of view). First I should
tell you, that the zeropath is removed in current CVS. This removal
came out of a discussion of the developers after the sf patch 861999.

But there is a new and very important question arising out of your
idea: How should we deal with those breaks at all? We will need some
generic way of modifying paths (lines, but also filled areas like
bars) by special axis features. What I do have in mind is breaking a
bar at a split position of the value axis. We should (at least be
able to) generate waste edges in bars as well as break markers at
