extrude around a curve

DanS
Are there any tools for taking a curve and "linear_extrude" or "rotate_extrude" about it?

It would be extremely useful if this could be done.  Likewise using a curve to define the scaling width of an object being extruded would be nice.

OpenSCAD is very cool, but I'm having trouble navigating the "other" modules (not bundled with the standard download) out there and what they do and how they work.

I saw some stuff about arches and am not sure if there is any need for more arch code (I am working on a "standard gothic arch", ogee arch, and a catenoid arch (having trouble with that one)).  But this all might be duplicative.
