It’s so you can control the thickness of the edge pieces in puzzles with
pentagons and above. It doesn’t work on squares. Here’s a comment from
the related code:
// Fractional lengths are basically a hack for
// and higher gons
// so that the middle edge width can be controlled
// by the user; we don’t want it to apply
// to squares though
Try building "{5,3}x{} 2.8" and play with the fraction to see. The
entire "Invent My Own" thing is some very cool stuff from Don but is
experimental and unsupported.
