Problem with Agg Ellipses

Tedd, Michael -

Sorry to join this discussion late, but wouldn’t it be easier to use a representation of an ellipse in complex variables? That’s what I have been using and it seems pretty quick to me.

Have you guys tried this? Any experience you want to share?

The main point we are discussion is not how to represent the ellipse,
but what geometric primitives to use to render the ellipse. Earlier
versions of mpl used a polygon, then we added support for a 4 spline
approximation to reduce the error of the approximation. This too did
not have sufficient accuracy, and so Michael added an 8 spline
approximation (Ellipse) as well as an adaptive approximation (Arc).
