Bug Description

Follow-up to Bug #1155046 (Assertion `pathlen < 200' failed).

The Libavoid code embedded in the Inkscape code is quite old (connector.cpp is from 2009), and the upstream project is still alive as part of the Adaptagrams project (https://github.com/mjwybrow/adaptagrams).

It would be interesting to update our version as it probably fixes some connectors bugs.

While we're at it, we could also update Libcola (also in https://github.com/mjwybrow/adaptagrams).

As usual, the first step is a bit of archaeology... we need to identify:

1. The commit in the Adaptagrams repo at which we forked the code
2. The list of changes we have made since then:
2a. Which of these are minor/cosmetic (e.g., fixes for relatively harmless compiler warnings)?
2b. Can any patches be forwarded upstream?
2c. Do we need to maintain any Inkscape-specific patches?

Of course libavoid and libcola changed a lot in Inkscape and upstream...

Maybe we can ask the adaptagrams author ? (if i'm not mistaken, he was the one implemetning it into inkscape)
