Huh, is it certain that a checkbox is the best thing to do? Shouldn't we

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)
and line(lw), space(lw*2), line(lw) or foreground(lw), background(lw),
foreground(lw) and 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 :)

Are you sure you're running the correct code?  If you compile but don't
install and then run dia or app/dia, you're going to get the installed
version, i.e. not the one you just changed.  Either you should do a make
install after each change (probably not a good idea), or use the script
app/ to start dia from the source dirs.
