I believe I can see the idea there, but I can't quite tell what that
phrase means about terminating. The "contained within" also seems
inaccurate, because e.g.
lineWidth=100;moveTo(0,0);lineTo(1,0);lineTo(1,1) would result in a
convex hull that doesn't contain either arc, though I think it'd be
alright if said "does not intersect" instead.
A possible alternative that seems simpler and (I think) correct
(except in the special parallel case): The rounding arc should be
chosen so that if it was closed, it would not contain the join point.
