Looking into this more, I see two issues:

1) What names should we use for the different linecap options?
2) Where should these values be specified?

For 1), we could use the PostScript naming convention, though it is
somewhat difficult to remember.  The SVG naming convention is easier
to understand, but more wordy.

For 2), I don't really know at the moment.  :-)

I think it would be best to find a "general" solution that will work
for all routines capable of supporting linecap settings (for example,
'draw-line and 'polygon).

Any thoughts (about syntax, or otherwise)?
