Doug and Bulia,

you might like to know that inkscape CVS has just started to support  
pressure sensitivity, so it's time variable stroke width wasn't just  
a part of the standard, but available in tools!

Doug,

by the way, I checked out your page, and I must say I wholeheartedly
support your proposal for the variable stroke width. This is one of
the cases where "emulating" it with <path> with extended attributes
would be extremely messy. The plain standard-SVG solution that you
propose is much simpler and more elegant.

The only thing I don't like is binding the widths array to the control
points of a path. In Inkscape, for example, it's easy to add/remove
path nodes (almost) without distorting the path, so it would be nice
to be able to do this without distorting the stroke shape either.
