OK.

Then I suggest we just require two points and allow an optional angle as
well. Linear gradients really have "start lines" and "end lines"; we define
the start line of the gradient as the line that passes through the start
point which is perpendicular to the given angle, and the end line of the
gradient is the line that passes through the end point which is
perpendicular to the given angle. The angle defaults to the angle of the
line from the start point to the end point.
