Interesting that you use hard-coded numbers for the shape of the
curves. Mine does not. You can change the tilt and curve_factor
parameters on my triwing, or the wing_ratio on my arrowing, to produce a
whole family of curves with exactly the same symmetry properties.

That was the key point I was trying to demonstrate: the ability to do
powerful geometrical calculations in just a few lines of code.
