(even if we start by implementing only single and double lines, you can
already argue: how much spacing between the two lines? For instance, if the
basic line width is "lw", it may be useful to have:
      line(lw), space(lw), line(lw) 
but also
      line(lw), space(lw/2), line(lw)
      line(lw), space(lw*2), line(lw)
      foreground(lw), background(lw), foreground(lw)
      foreground(lw), background(lw*2), foreground(lw)
                              this would be a must with foreground=orange,
                              background=yellow, to sketch a quick map to
                              a destination which includes motorways

At least, SVG is mute on this topic.

It's ofcourse better to have the implementation more flexible, but I'm
actually just searching for a double-line and hope to have something working
in a decent timeschedule. 

Plus it's a good way for me to get used to the dia codebase :) If I get used
to that, perhaps I can contribute (I didn't use dia before until now, but I
really think it's going to help me with my current studies -- give or take
a few features :)

objects/standard/line.c/line_draw() affects only the "Standard - Line"

It is on the "Standard - Line" that I want to achieve the double-line
feature. But even when I clear the line_draw() function from dia, the
"Standard - Line" still shows.

When I double-click on that line, I get the properties for it (and it sais
"Properties: Standard - Line") so I'm pretty sure I'm working with the
correct object :)
