Well, the single biggest reason not to put the change in is that we're having a release shortly ... so I've put your change in.
Folks, WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET 2.6.0 OUT THE DOOR? Should I be expecting the Parousia first?

Subject: [Freeglut-developer] Making stroke fonts less ugly
I've just been quite happy that FreeGLUT provides stroke fonts out of
the box (never really used them before, but they were quite handy right
now). Unfortunately, they're a bit ugly when rendered with wide lines
due to the missing joins. I've found a nice discussion of the problem
 and decided to try the simplest variant with points. It actually
looks really good now IMHO, so I thought I'll just post this tiny patch
here. I suppose there's lots of reasons why this can't be included in
FreeGLUT, but nevertheless, maybe somebody else can also make use of it.
Thanks, Yours, Florian
