IIRC Dave did a change to the edge plug-in somewhen in the 1.3.x
development cycle that incorporated code from the thinline
plug-in. Doesn't that mean that it can produce similar results?

Also I remember that the plan was to move all edge algorithms into
edge.c in order to obsolete the other plug-ins in the distribution.
That tasks has probably not been finished before 2.0. Might be a good
time to do that now.
