Just played around with it a bit. It seems easy to add control points
(nodes); just enter "Edit paths by nodes" mode (F2), select all the
nodes (clt+A), then click the "Insert new nodes into selected
segments" button a few times (the number of nodes will double each
time).

But... when I import into Eagle, it looks good zoomed out, but then I
zoom in and it looks like a bunch of tiny disconnected straight lines.
So... I'm missing something I guess! If anyone gets farther, share the
trick!
