Freeze width nodes in their position when extending or shortening a path
Maybe this feature exists already but I haven't been able to find it.
When using the width tool, it would be nice if you could "freeze" the width nodes in their position, so you could extend or shorten the path. Today the nodes adjust to the new length of the path, messing up all your previous work.

I'd like to be able to choose whether the width variation on my line should be relative to the whole length (therefore redistributed when the line gets longer, as happens now) or locked to the curve points on the line, so they remain as set when I add to the end of the line. I keep having to go back and re-set my widths.
