So I was working on a grill and it dawned on me how this feature could help.
Here's the single double sided mesh, the edges have no width to them:

What if I wanted to solidify it and give it some width?
I'd go for the 'Solidify' modifier, however this presents a problem:

As you can see the 'Solidify' modifier is unable to create a 3D shape from the mesh.
My suggestion was to implement a 'Centered' function that creates width based on the distance between two verts.
This way it's possible to create a clean solidified mesh from the double-sided face.
