All data created during the import Gerber process appears to be polygons,
even though the Gerber D01 records are basically path segments with specific aperture widths
A simple polygon for a horizontal segment has 64 points vs. a simple path has 2 points plus the width value
Wouldn't paths more closely match the Gerber data format & result in smaller design file sizes?
