I always make it a point to apply the "heart test" to any vector drawing
program I plan to use. If the program can draw a properly curved heart, the
program is an honest-to-goodness drawing program. The heart must be drawn
using control points (for example, Bezier curves) rather than freehand
strokes or pre-drawn "clipart."

In the last version of Killustrator I tried out, I was unable to produce the
corner nodes that are necessary to produce the middle part of the heart (the
parts where the two halves of the heart are joined). All Killustrator could
produce are rounded tips. So the heart looks more like an apple.
