1.2 feature request.

  The ability to draw to parallel lines/curves, as might be found on a
street plan.
  with a straight line a simple offset is fine. 
  This doesn't work with, for example circles, where 'parallel' could
  be de defined as two concentric circles. For a winding street,
  equally an offset with a fixed value would not suffice.

I don't believe this is available in 1.0/1.1
(unless you know different :-)

Prior use:
  Autocad has the ability to select an line, set the offset and side,
  and then create a copy 'parallel' to the first.

Use case:
 Drawing a street map, where the lines are seperated by a few millimetres.
