Any chance this might make it in a future release? I'm running into this again now, and I don't like to the use libraries for this
basic lathe functionality.
Would it be easy for me (having some C++ experience) to add it myself?

Best regards,

I like the idea of modifying rotate_extrude to allow for building helixes, although it's a step backwards from providing more
general extrusion functionality..
