Ah, this will result in a hexagonal approximation of the circle if you set the
flat-roof-extension length to something like
(1-1/max-slope) * min-distance-between-skylines / 2. Nice! Sounds like a
sufficient solution to me. Also, if there will be a real need for better
approximations of the circle, we can always change that later.
