Barlines are too thick

Lilypond's default barlines are far, far too thick. Acceptable barlines in engraved music should not be significantly thicker than staff lines. Also, at high magnification levels, the top end of the barlines overshoots the edge of the staff line; the bottom end of the barlines may do this too.

-----begin example-----

% barlines-too-thick.ly
% Barlines are too thick.
% 6 January 2007

\version "2.10.8" % Mac OS X 10.4.8, iBook G4
\paper { ragged-right = ##t }

        \relative c'' {
                c4 c4 c4 c4
                c2 c2

------end example------
