[BNM] paper.js question

as far as I can tell, that should be what a CompoundPath is for but for 
some reason all the paths inside a CompoundPath take on the style 
assigned to the CompoundPath (or the last added path segment).

adding all the paths separately works but it means I can't smooth the 
line which is a pain, I've tried a path of paths and a path of lines and 
that wont smooth either.

it's not a huge issue, just seems like a bit of a strange thing not to 
be able to do.
