[Therion] New symbols

here are a few ideas for other new symbols.

I am extensively using a few additional symbols while drawing 
projections: dashed contours for contours thare are on the back-side of 
the projection, dashed areas for the connection of two galleries or for 
a void / gallery orthogonal to the projection.

I am also using an additional line symbol (which should be actually 
clipped off automatically) for the direction of fractures visible on the 
walls, and I am often missing a point symbol "dip" for the inclination  
of the strata

## To draw contours which are on the back-side of the projection
   def l_u_backcontour (expr Path) =
     T:=identity;
     pickup PenD;
     draw Path dashed evenly scaled (0.25 * optical_zoom);
   enddef;

## Area of connection of two galleries, orthogonal to the projection and 
on the front-size
def a_u_connection(expr Path) =
   #% density
   numeric  dx; dx := 0.25u;
   T:=identity;
   path q; q := bbox Path;
   numeric lq; lq :=   xpart urcorner q - xpart llcorner q;
   numeric hq; hq :=   ypart urcorner q - ypart llcorner q;
   numeric dq;  dq :=  lq+hq;
   picture tmp_pic;
   tmp_pic := image(
     for i = xpart llcorner q - hq step dx until  xpart urcorner q:
       numeric j; j := ypart llcorner q;
       thdraw (i,j)--(i+hq,j+hq) withpen pensquare scaled (0.01u);
     endfor;
   );
   clip tmp_pic to Path;
   clip tmp_pic to Path shifted (-dq/40,-dq/40);
   draw tmp_pic;
enddef;
# initsymbol("a_u_connection");


## same for connections on the back-side of the projection
def a_u_backconnection(expr Path) =
   #% density
   numeric  dx; dx := 0.25u;
   T:=identity;
   path q; q := bbox Path;
   numeric lq; lq :=   xpart urcorner q - xpart llcorner q;
   numeric hq; hq :=   ypart urcorner q - ypart llcorner q;
   numeric dq;  dq :=  lq+hq;
   picture tmp_pic;
   tmp_pic := image(
     for i = xpart llcorner q - hq step dx until  xpart urcorner q:
       numeric j; j := ypart llcorner q;
       draw (i,j)--(i+hq,j+hq) dashed evenly scaled (0.5 * optical_zoom) ;
     endfor;
   );
   clip tmp_pic to Path;
   clip tmp_pic to Path shifted (-dq/40,-dq/40);
   draw tmp_pic;
enddef;
   endcode



   def l_u_fracture (expr P) =
     T:=identity;
     cas := 0;
     dlzka := arclength P;
     mojkrok:=adjust_step(dlzka, 0.8u);
     pickup PenC;
     k := 90;
     forever:
       t1 := arctime (cas + mojkrok*1/5) of P;
       t  := arctime (cas + mojkrok/2) of P;
       t2 := arctime (cas + mojkrok*4/5) of P;
       thdraw (subpath (t1,t2) of P);
       mark_alt (P,t,0.2u, k);
       cas := cas + mojkrok;
       k := (k + 180) mod 360;
       exitif cas > dlzka - (2*mojkrok/3); % for rounding errors
     endfor;
   enddef;
   initsymbol("l_fracture_XAV");
