Function to draw arcs in Sketchpad

Could a function be added to Sketchpad so we can draw arcs "directly", instead of having to draw a circle and then cover part of it? (with a similar interface as gdi::Arc() or not)

In the D3D9, Ellipses() are drawn by using a pre-computed (sin, cos) table from where the ellipse is drawn as a polyline. Arc() would likely require computing each point in a real time to form a polyline to get the endpoints appear correctly.

One possibility would be having an utility library containing function like the Arc().
