Oops, that alone doesn't mean it's not achievable, since we have
elliptical radii now.

But it's still not clear if it's truly achievable as the author
wanted without site context.  (For example, was it indeded that the
corners of the bevel be slightly rounded?)


So I stand by my original request:  what's needed to demonstrate
sufficient demand are a significant number of well-designed sites
doing things that could be substantially simplified through this new
feature.
