Improving Lathe Support

While Chris is busy improving emc2's lathe support, I've been improving the display. This screenshot shows the tool shape and origin, taken from the tool table (including the tip diameter and the angles). As you can see, the tool origin is following the inner (compensated) path while the tip of the tool is following the outer (programmed) path.
