[Gimp-developer] gegl and spiro



What benefits are there from installing the spiro libraries for gegl to use?

According to the spiro website:  http://libspiro.sourceforge.net/

Using b├ęzier splines an artist can easily draw curves with the same
slope on either side of an on-curve point. Spiros, on the other hand,
are based on clothoid splines which make it easy to maintain constant
curvature as well as constant slope. Such curves will simply look
nicer.

I've never had the spiro libraries installed on my computer. They can
be downloaded from sourceforge. What would be the benefits? What part
of Gimp would draw nicer curves?
