"have problem" or "have no problem" ?
Was thinking we could add an `ugly` option to beauty fill (swap edges
to produce skinny faces instead), this way we have a more predicable
version of face flip.
if you happened to have many tri pairs selected some skinny, some not
- and happened to want to flip the edges of each pair - then you're
still out of luck, but this is becoming a very specific use case.
people can have scripts/addons for this sort of think IMHO.
