The future of Lines2Pattern

Unfortunately it doesn't work very well on the first try I made, that happened to be a relatively complex and concave area. Actually the convex envelope was triangulated, and not all generated surface had the middle line color...
Attached the initial line configuration and buggy result.

As a side note: I don't think this method is very usable anyway since the preparation overhead is quite high...

There is a workaround: you can create more green middle lines (see attachement).

I created an issue (#652) which includes "fill" and some triangle optimisations.

I will port this feature to LDPatternCreator when the implementation of Lines2Pattern is reaching a decent state in LDPE.
