I think that it is just a matter of adjusting the intrusion code to also
push the intrusion (after the cursor deviates a fair amount) in the same
manner as "drag line keep slope" and then chaining on to the next
intrusion. I want to take a stab a circular arcs for tracks for signal
integrity as well (minimum radius by netclass). Also, squeezing and
stretching accordians to length match. This little things could make
manually routing high-speed boards much easier.
