You can offset in either direction. It decides what is "inside" and
"outside", and then it adjusts so that the "inside" gets the correct
dimensions. The algorithm for that is basically "count from the outside,
every time you cross a shape border, it switches "inside"/"outside".
Anything which isn't a closed object isn't offset, so a single line isn't
offset, neither is a point.
