Interesting, any links?

Better abstraction features would be great, that is in essence what I 
wanted. OpenSCAD is "The Programmers Solid 3D CAD Modeller" and as a 
software engineer I would like to have similar abstraction capabilities 
when "programming 3d models" as when programming applications. So a move 
in that direction is good.

However, improving the modelling capabilities with general sweeping etc. 
is just as important.

Thanks for the great work you are doing!
