This bit of your patch did it:

Note that the TYPE_ENUM property definition is not entirely fulfilled, as you
need to provide the different choices (I wonder why it falls back to
behaving as if it was a PROP_TYPE_INT ?). It sounds perfectly reasonable to
leave it as an enum (once it's completely defined -- grep for examples),
you'll just have a combo menu with two items in it, spelt out in plain text
(I'm not convinced having a checkbox saying "double" is the right thing).

Are you sure you really need to allocate, construct, copy, then destroy and
free a temporary copy of a full-blown Line object each time you draw a
double-line? you can indeed break the line down to its individual components
and call the renderer primitives (or maybe better, add a new method to
the renderers, with an extra LineCount parameter,  and make its default 
implementation use the basic renderer primitives. Standard - Line then
delegates to your new renderer method instead of draw_line_with_arrows().
