Fair point. I have created an issue in barchart's issue tracker. I'll  
probably make rounded corners optional and turn them off by default.

Round corners have a small advantage: multiple blocks per bar which  
are all black cannot be distinguished without them because the line  
around blocks is also black. This could, however, easily be improved  
by making the line color configurable too. Probably best would be to  
have either "same color as block" or some configurable color, where  
the default is black.

Thanks for the feedback!


Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
