I have finished a first real implementation with a draft. Screenshot is
again on https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/User:Regina/DraftLineCapStyle.
I have re-introduced the labels for the join and (new) cap list, because
without the labels the lists are not reachable via keyboard. The
characters in the labels are used for Alt-<underlined character>.
I have already noticed, that it should be plural in "Corner and cap
styles", but change has to wait till a new build.
There's one thing I would propose, though: moving the long

That would make the whole dialog wider, with impact on the other dialog
pages. Or do you mean to make the lists "style" and "color" smaller? At
least the preview of the chosen line style should be totally visible.

It is the very first start with this new feature. My implementation does
nothing yet but show the dialog. It is the first time for me to
implement a new property, so I'm slow. There will be time enough to make
a nice dialog till all other parts are finished.
