Now you have a 72dpi canvas for drawing on the screen, and some 600dpi canvas
for drawing on the paper.
In 5 years you might have e-paper with a 300dpi canvas as screen.
So those canvases operate on similiar scales.
Of course the GUI, lets say an editor, and a printout, lets say the
doc it edits would be two different "images".
But why not use the same drawing commands for both?
