Eeschema GAL arc rendering


I don't know if anyone is aware but there is an issue with rendering
symbols with arcs in the new Eeschema gal code.  Apparently, the legacy
canvas could be tricked into drawing a minimal line width using a
negative width value.  This cause the the gal canvas to draw a rather
interesting blob (you can check this by opening any nor gate symbol in
the 4xxx library.  The solution proposed by the librarians is to us the
minimal 1mil line width but the rendered results are less than ideal in
the legacy canvas[1].  Anyone have any ideas about how to resolve this?
I would prefer that the gal canvases render symbols the same as the
legacy canvas without have two sets of symbol libraries.
