Feature request #3797
Specify joint style for Simple Markers

Simple symbols for point layers have bevelled joints. Why would anyone want bevelled joints? :)
Ideally it would be possible to specify the joint style.
N.B. Because the border thickness cannot be specified (#3458) this means that when a composer layout is exported to svg, small square symbols turn into octagons!
N.B. in printouts the bevel is not visible (at least on Windows) because all borders are printed as a very thin black line (see #3778).
I'm marking this as minor and an enhancement, because that's what it is. The real problems are caused by the other two bugs :)

In recent versions, QGIS has gotten real good at offering the user to modify the join style throughout symbology and composer items. Yet, the simple marker hasn't (yet) been given that specific attention.
Could we try and fulfill this basic feature request by 2.8? I'm attaching a simple symbology case that clearly shows why bevel joins aren't good for all scenarios.
Glad I'm not the first one to ask this. :)
