Ticket #2000 (new enhancement)
Ftools -> add a "don't make caps at the end of polylines" and "side" options in the buffer tool

The first one is available in GRASS v.buffer, but this misses a option to avoid the dissolve of buffer results, so actually we have a kind of incomplete buffer tool in both QGIS and GRASS.
The second option (missing also in v.buffer) would be very useful in some cases and coupled with the above one would complete the buffer tool and give ex arc* user the same options they were used to. See this screenshot
