Use PIL, and draw on an image twice the size (2*width, 2*height) as the
one you want.  When you're done, resize the image --BILINEAR works fine
in this case.

You will need to draw thicker lines & arcs (I don't remember ATM if you
can use a <width> parameter with drawing methods)... create a custom
class to manage drawing double lines and arcs / circles when needed.
