I fixed marker previews. Now all markers (no matter where they come from,
i.e. both from the current document and from markers.svg) are automatically
shown with their icons in the start/mid/end menus in the Fill&Stroke dialog.
No need to provide a preview object in markers.svg; that file needs only
contain the markers themselves in <defs>.
Simarilius wrote a small tutorial on how to create new markers. It's in
share/tutorials/making_markers.svg. It's not in the menu because it's
supposed to be temporary until we have a GUI facility for doing the same in
a convenient way.
I also tweaked markers.svg: provided 3 coordinated sizes for most useful
markers, removed some not-so-useful ones, and generally cleaned them up. I
would add more markers, but the menus become difficult to handle when they
grow too long. What we need instead is a palette-like widget where marker
icons can be shown in several rows/columns.
