Hans just needs to make sure that his "unitsquare randomized" will
still work after adding the flag :)

I find Jacko's idea interesting :), but if you implement this flag
(which is probably more reliable) it might make sense to keep the
control points at 1/3, 2/3 where they are now (to start with) and to
remove the "straight" flag as soon as user starts messing with them
(starts moving them around).
