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).
