Description

When having a long polyline, it is useful to place several time the same label along the line.
Right now, it is possible to avoid the creation of the label if the line is shorter than a threshold.
What would be great is to define ranges:
Distance | # items
< 10m | 0
10<l<50 | 1
>50m | 2

To do this, the use of fields to save the placement of labels should be changed and use a MULTIPOINT geometry.
I see one problem: how to save orientation and distance fields if there are several labels.
