Here are two patches to resolve this. The first simply adds some more
documentation for the existing miter limit calculation, (primarily a
new figure), and the second introduces the new minimum-angle

This second patch does make the currently failing get-path-extents
test pass once again.

I'd appreciate anyone looking over the diagrams and algebra to ensure
I didn't botch anything.
