Hi all, I've been suggested to change buffer style values to
match the SVG convention:

> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/painting.html#StrokeProperties
> geos             svg
> endcap=round     stroke-linecap=round
> endcap=square    stroke-linecap=square
> endcap=flat      stroke-linecap=butt
> join=mitre       stroke-linejoin=miter
> join=round       stroke-linejoin=round
> join=bevel       stroke-linejoin=bevel

Basically using 'butt' for 'flat' and 'miter' rather than 'mitre'
would make us closer to SVG naming.  Fine for everyone ?
