Thanks for pointing that out. I tested it and it worked well
initially. I got a crash when I tried to change some of the display
options, but I do not have details or time right now to help debug.
Overall, this is very impressive.
One quick note: there is no longer a way to set lines to a "no stroke"
value. Setting the line width to 0.0 still draws a line. Sometimes it
is nice to not have lines drawn, but still have labels placed on the
canvas, e.g. when overlaying symbols on a raster layer.
