OpenSCAD is heavily oriented towards 3D-printing, and, to some extent,
leaves us laser cutter guys out in the cold, or at least requiring us to
make irritating workarounds.

For example, a line is useless in 3D-printing, but extremely useful in laser
cutting (google "living hinge" for a good example).

I really hope that considerations for laser cuttings will enter into the
plan for OpenSCAD, it would mean a lot to us. 3D-printing is just too slow,
has too small work area and too limited in materials available to be useful
for me.
