[OpenSCAD] extruding plain draws or saving plain draws into STL files.

I've discovered the next thing in OpenSCAD and I want to know if it's a
logical situation or is a limitation or if it's a bug behaviour.
1st : I can't use linear_extrude() with modules that use 3D
instructions, only with those that use exclusively 2D instructions.
2nd: I can't export to STL a drawing that uses exclusively 2D instructions.
if I want to generate an STL file with only 2D instructions, I need to
apply at least a 0.1 of linear_extrusion to the drawing.
3rd: As a consequence of the first, I can't use linear_extrude() to
extrude an imported STL, because its content is always in 3D.
Did anyone know a tip or trick to save 2D drawings into an STL and to
extrude an STL file imported?
Thank you all in advance!
