Same here sans eaglecad. I've been thinking how to make reasonable
heuristics to put zones in place where track makes a loop. The better
way would probably be a cutout routing tool though. I'm looking forward
to see CERN geometry engine merged in and used in some semi-intelligent
autorouting which would help this "polygon routing" as well. Also
helpful for power electronics would be [1].
