Non of this functionality is provided by QCAD/CAM out of the box.

The idea behind QCAD/CAM is to provide a universal scriptable framework which can create any type of output based on CAD data.

In other words, while all the things on your feature list would be achievable with QCAD/CAM, non of it is implemented and readily available. The configurations currently provided with QCAD/CAM generate basic G-Code output only (lines and arcs that represent the geometry of all the entities in the drawing).

Yes, that would be great :) However, you've posted several months of work, so this is unlikely to happen anytime soon..
