Hi Harm (et al.),

Why (conceptually) can’t a pair work in that case?
Given 'outline #'(5 . 0), I think we could reasonably interpret that as saying:
1. at any point on the grob with vertical slope, the whiteout should extend
5 units [horizontally] from the grob edge;
2. at any point on the grob with horizontal slope, the whiteout should not
extend at all [vertically] from the grob edge;
3. at any other point on the grob, the whiteout should extend [horizontally
and vertically] by an interpolated amount.
I’m not saying I know *how* to implement that… but the determining logic/math
seems fairly easy to understand.
(Of course, until such time as the feature is implemented, a warning message
would be nice.)
Cheers,
Kieren.
