Thanks for your response.  Yes, i considered using a Minkowsky sum, but it's so computationally intense that I was motivated to try to a more parsimonious way.  This might make a useful enhancement that would probably be easy to implement.

Not natively, as far as I can tell.
I did find a way to hack it together, though:

This actually uses Minkowski to grow the result of the intersection huge, unless there is no intersection and there is nothing to grow. This huge solid is then intersected with the "true" solid result, and subtracted from the "false" solid result, so only one of them remains.

support structure for a 3D print.
