Now that PL has variable width lines, the main thing I use CorelDraw or Illustrator for is to stretch a complex vector object along a path.
Both programs provide sets of vector shapes that somewhat mimic various brush and pen strokes. These shapes can be applied to a path, stretching from the beginning of the path to the end, and the general width can be set using the standard width control.
