It was only Jean-Pierre that expressed some concern about this. I was in favor of it, and
immediately enabled it in the specctra export support.
However adding it not a matter of re-enabling it. It would require actual software
development, and that takes time and usually money.
We should be reluctant to proceed without first getting agreement from Jean-Piere as a
matter of courtesy. I think that requires a little more conversation.
Do not confuse these statements as me volunteering to do the actual work.
I do have a patch from Thomas Spindler which is in my work queue which claims to allow
internal Edge.Cuts to be passed through to freerouter as keepouts. I like the concept
there also, just want to look into the patch in detail first.
