      Do you have evidence for this, or is it just your experienced opinion?
      It seems like an unlikely over-generalization to me. When writing fast,
      isn't there a tendency to do fine on the straightaways, but then tend to
      overshoot the hard turns? Or by "line quality" are you only talking about
      the "straightaways"?

      True, the straightaways will get more ragged if drawn too slowly.
      Seems to me *confidence* would be a bigger factor.
