Any plans to add an offset command?  I've written a recursive 
subroutine in Perl which does offsets of arbitrary polygons 
(splitting and joining vertices as needed.)  It needs some work (I 
wrote it when I was a noob) but polygons are the hardest thing to 
offset.  Lines, arcs, and circles are all cake compared to that.
