I personally think we need the ability to read and write files, there are a
LOT of use cases

Yeah, this is so common there's a section devoted to listing such projects
at:

https://wiki.shapeoko.com/index.php/Programming#Python

and I've even gotten started on my own:

https://community.carbide3d.com/t/previewing-g-code-using-openscad/35153

It would be nice if we could avoid all this redundant effort --- all I
want is an option and checkbox as a preference:

[ ] Write out only Echo text using file extension: _____
(no other log information, or redundant text such as "ECHO: " will be
included)

I will gladly donate a CNC machine (Shapeoko 3 Standard size w/ Z-Plus
axis) to the person who is willing to do this --- just let me know.
