As of right now plot lines extend the height (or width?) of the chart. In my case I want to be able to control how high the plot lines rise. This simple addition will allow much greater control of that.

An example using this change would be something like:

plotLines:  [{
    value: i,
    width: 1,
    verticalAlign: 'middle',
    color: '#ffffff',
    formatter(path) {
        // path will be in the format of ["M", 108.5, 10, "L", 108.5, 186]
        path[2] = 50 * this.value; // Edit height of lines
        return path; // return new path array
@@ -54,6 +55,11 @@ Highcharts.PlotLineOrBand.prototype = {
// plot line
if (width) {
path = axis.getPlotLinePath(value, width);

if (typeof formatter === 'function') {
path = formatter(path);

This should probably be path =, path). Just not sure what to set the context to.

Would love to have this. Sadly we're not on latest highcharts.

You can do something similar by wrapping the PlotBandOrLine.prototype.render function :
