The <code>control.insertXY</code> method inserts a point at the given
map coordinates (x, y) immediately prior to the most recent point
(under the mouse).
The <code>control.insertDeltaXY</code> method inserts a point at
the given offset values (dx, dy) from the previously added point.
The <code>control.insertDirectionLength</code> method inserts a
point at offset direction and length from the previously added point.
Direction is measured counter-clockwise from the positive x-axis.
The <code>control.insertDeflectionLength</code> method inserts a
point at offset deflection and length from the previously added point.
Deflection is measured counter-clockwise from the previous line
The <code>control.finishSketch</code> method completes the current
sketch without adding the point under the user's mouse. This
allows a sketch to be finished without a double-click.
The <code>control.cancel</code> method discards the current
sketch and leaves the control active.
The <code>control.insertXY</code> method may be called before
any points are digitized manually. The other methods have no
effect until at least one point has been added to the sketch.
