Step Position ('on', 'between')
I'd like to specify a stepPosition (such as 'on' or 'between') when step: true. Currently the step always occurs on the actual data point. I'd like to be able to have it step before the data point, so you end up with a plot more similar to a column chart.
My example is that I have an area chart with overlapping series, but I need a step chart, because I'm representing a fixed number of reads at specific loci on a strand of DNA.
Actually we just implemented this. See http://jsfiddle.net/highcharts/vQS2n/. It will be released with the next maintenance.

Is it possible to 'extend' the start and end steps to the edge of the plot area?
See my graph here http://weather.wilmslowastro.com/highcharts/rainYearly.htm
I'd like the Jan and Dec lines extended rather than stopping in the centre of the column group.
