Feature request #1297
Add ability to control stroke capping for line symbology (or default to flat cap)

It would be good to have control over how stroke capping is set - so that strokes which have thickness x don't extend beyond the actual end of the polyline by distance x/2, but rather finish exactly at it.
Default is square capping, which causes the protrusion past the polyline end-point
QT 3 default was for flat capping - looks like this changed in QT 4.
Also looks like the old (pre 1.0) print composer setCapStyle to flat capping.
One problem with flat-capping is that it might cause ugly white slivers to appear where two polylines meet each other not-quite head-on - so probably needs to be a configurable option.
