Sure, it would be awesome if someone could work on it. It's not in the
plans for the 5.0 release, although some base code for handling arc
tracks could be already written: geometry functions that we'll need for DRC:

- implement a SHAPE_ARC for the geometry library, describing a non-zero
thickness arc
- write an arc to segment collision function (see SHAPE::Collide)
- write an arc to arc collision function.
