Curved labels : max angle delta between letters
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|

In new labeling tool, it would be useful for the user to set the value of the max angle delta between letters (like MAXOVERLAPANGLE of Mapserver).
See attached screenshot test_anno_curv_roubion2.png: Black labels are drawn by a WMS Mapserver layer, red labels by QGIS.
The label "Le Roubion" is drawn only if MAXOVERLAPANGLE is set to 30 in .map file (with default value, it's not drawn).

Thanks, it's all right.
The label "Le roubion" is drawn with outside angle of 40.
See attached file test_anno_curv_roubion_outside_angle_40 (black labels from mapserver, red labels from qgis).
Second example: "Canal de Bourgogne" and "La Vingeanne" are drawn with outside angle of 30 and letter spacing of 150 mapunits.
See attached file test_canal_de_bourgogne.
For missing Qgis labels in this second example, see #6674
Seeing your example in #6763-6, your proposal of character averaging is interesting.

confirmed here too, and really interested in the averaging solution to allow have readable labels for complex lines. See screenshot, that typically show big rivers, zoomed out, are the first to loose labeling, or to have overlapping characters.
