[OpenSCAD] DXF for cut and engrave

In my current project on fractal patterns, both the cut outlines and the
curves to be engraved are closed paths so the difference() {outline;engrave} 
trick seems to work, both to preview the design and to create a single DXF
and then into (on our laser cutter) Lasercut 5.3 

In a previous project to laser cut the net of a polyhedra from card with the
interior edges scored, to get actual, coloured lines, I had to resort to
generating SVG as a string output to the console to copy into Inkscape to
convert to DXF - it would have been good to have been able to output that
text directly to a file but I never found out how to.
