Polygons do work, but they are different kind of object than zones and I think they both should be there.

I think zones suppose to flood, while polygons should be always solid.

Polygons do not currently have "do not show filled".

There are many designs which already have zones on non coppers layers, so Kicad will have to support them anyway, but users won't be able to place new ones?

Also note that there is difference in how zone vs polygon outline is drawn. When you draw 10x10mm zone, resulting object will have the same dimensions, but polygon will be 10x10mm + outline width.

Andrzej, does this tool not work?

    Orson,

    Is there any reason not to allow zones to be drawn on non-copper
    layers?
     The changes you made in this commit would seem to indicate there
    was a
    reason not to allow this.  I'm going to hold off on rc1 until we get
    this resolved.

    Thanks,

    Wayne
