I think the usual hand-engraved version would be done with an oval
stencil so the curve should be thinner in the middle for the particular
case of a symmetric steep S.  Bezier sandwiches are a reasonably working
approximation of this kind of turning action for single-segment slurs.
I am not sure that multi-segment slurs map as well to them.
