I recently spent a bit of time on some annoying bugs, but I just
finished, so I can work on the outline thickness fix, if you are not
working on this fix.
No problem (I made some work to see what happens with border-less filled
polygons in zones).
Just tell me.

It also could be worth to commit the work on Removing segment
hard-coding, because zone filled polygons optimization also include
circle to segments optimization.
