OK. But I don't see how to set the default value for a missing optional
property. It seems to set to the object creation default, which will be
whatever the current default start arrow is at load time; this is
obviously wrong. I need to override this to "no arrow" when loading an
old file. Suggestions?
Look at e.g. http://git.gnome.org/browse/dia/commit/?id=aeb71aca
for an example.
Still I'm not convinced that an extra start arrow is an improvement at all.
