I committed the Raoul patch; the patch was however purged of
any stilistic modifications and I only kept the code changes
and copyright updates.
Stilistic modifications could perhaps be applied separately,
but perhaps someone else than me should do that.

Raoul: thank you very much for the time you spent on the asy
exporter.  I really like this feature!

A quadratic Bezier is actually a conic arc... perhaps we should somehow
take advantage of this (I mean, not just for exporting) since I have the
feeling that kig is not aware of this possible identification...

Whatever you are able to do is welcome!

I cannot comment on this.  Pino, can you comment?
