It's a shame how much time it took me to sit down to write the patch
(10 days) in comparison to writing and testing the 5-line patch (5
minutes). Anyway, the patch is both in master and libchamplain-12
branch now and seems to be working correctly. I'd suggest to avoid odd
point sizes because they look ugly (I guess because of some rounding).
