Why not implement your removal of overlapping path segments as a
separate plug-in which can be executed on any paths, not just imported
ones? Doing this would eliminate the import interface offering an
option which addresses a hardware/graphics "preview" limitation which
many users would not, and would not care to, understand (and may
disappear in the future).
