Spiros

Fiddling with the spiro mode, and neglecting the unfortunate numerical instability and the occasional segfault, I think maybe I can see what is so good about using Cornu spirals instead of Bezier curves. The Cornu curves seem eager to snap into place.

I’m disabled and do all my input, painfully, both ‘keyboarding’ and ‘mousing’, with the type of device they sell at http://www.datahand.com. Anything that can cut down on the amount of finger-moving I have to do in creating or adjusting outlines is a blessing.

Which is great to hear :-)
