All four of these are 2000 times more important than this improvement, IMO.
Please think about option 1, exclusively, if it ever reaches the top of
your priority list with sufficient time, but I would would wait until
after D) otherwise it will be obsolete soon after you write it.
Two of 4 vendors I spoke to about my current board were prepared to do
the panelizing for me at no cost. So apparently there is some pretty
powerful gerber file manipulation software out there that these board
companies have access to. They can compute trace and space widths
without being told what it is, just by gerber analysis. And for a
multilayer board were a bed of nails or clam shell test is done on
everyboard, these software packages can even develop a netlist from the
gerber files alone.
I think maybe there is some software for this that you could come by if
you are not using one of these board houses.
