In order to minimize impact of rounding errors, we need the
resolution we do our layout at to be significantly higher than the
resolution at which we will produce the output.
The issue I am not entirely certain about is whether (a) this system of
units should be used throughout our code and translation to screen
be made wherever system API is accessed, or, (b) the internal units
only be used inside the layout and graphics classes, while the GUI
(the frame, toolbars, ect) would continue to use the system units.
The advantage of (a) is consistency, the main advantage of (b) is
avoiding unnecessary converions within the GUI code, as well as not
needing to interfere with the present GUI code, save at the
boundaries between it and our layout and graphics classes. I
personally am slightly inclined toward (b), but have not made up my
mind and would appreciate some input.
