Good catch.  I didn't use it, because I didn't see it.  Disregard that
patch, and I'll send you something tomorrow.

> Yes - I did some testing to confirm, and AFAIK, [NSBezier BezierPath] is a
"short cut" for [[NSBezier alloc] init], and provides some symmetry with the
other Bezier constructors in cocoa.  In C# it is just redundant (and
therefore confusing), which is why I suggest removing it.
