Hi Marco,

line caps and joins are also planned, but not implemented in the
prototype. You're right, it should be straightforward to include them
- I just didn't want to pollute the prototype with too many features
(since it's only a prototype).

I've found out that I haven't included anything related to units used
in the symbology. In current symbology options I see some weird
default values like 0.26 and setting pen widths is very unintuitive
(what units are those?). I think whenever in symbology-ng there will
be setting for pen width, there should be a line edit widget +
combobox where the user could specify what type of unit is he using
(points / milimeters / ...)
