Summary0004483: Improve UI to specify weights for B-splines
DescriptionAs discussed here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=51600&start=20#p444884
the current need to set a circle diameter to specify the spline weights is unintuitive. Weights are unitless and have nothing to do with circles.

My proposal: make the circles a constraint that is applied to the control point of the spline. Then you can set either the weight unitless directly, or via expression, and you can also select several constraints to make them equal by applying the equality constraint to it.
