The article was was very informative, and it seems that what I wanted to achieve can only be done with full pixels (solid paths) or with half pixel paths (soft lines) with a thickness higher than 1. I guess I could always transform the paths to bitmaps and cut were needed, as an easier alternative.
In any case, the article was quite useful, thanks. :)
