Microsoft rant OTD

Hey, Microsoft, it's great that in .NET's "Graphics" class you provide a transformation matrix for your drawing commands so that I can scale the curves I'm wanting to draw. I can even figure out how to work backwards and undo the fact that you transform the pen width in some way (which seems inconsistent with the notion that I can scale independently along axes, but I'll roll with it). What made the whole thing completely unusable, however, is that the curve subdivision doesn't happen in device space. What the hell?
