Would it be difficult to allow import() of STEP files?
Can anyone recommend a converter to STL?

Probably yes, STEP is a huge beast. The way to go would likely be to integrate
the lib from http://stepcode.org/ - I did not dig deep enough to have a feeling
how much effort it would be to get at least some core features that allow to
read a reasonable amount of files.
FreeCAD (http://freecadweb.org/) can also output step files (and read
the CSG files exported by OpenSCAD, which allows to convert from
OpenSCAD to STEP or IGES or many other formats).
