[Bf-committers] gpencil thresholds

These two distance thresholds were initially added to avoid having
really closely spaced points.
IIRC, Manhattan distance was really meant to avoid having situations
where drawing in a straight line (this was before the straight line
tool) would end up adding too many points (i.e. smaller
jitter/hand-shake would be eliminated), while Euclidean distance would
get rid of cases where the mouse hovered over a spot for a while but
only just bumped a bit.
Originally both were just hardcoded, but later I found that different
the sensitivity for some people was too extreme for others.
Hopefully this helps,
