+Oversized arcs
+--------------
+
+KiCad arcs can be either clockwise or counter-clockwise, and there is
+no explicit indication of the direction. To avoid ambiguities, arcs are
+limited to < 180 degrees. The converter seems to be unaware of this
+restriction and produces arcs >= 180 degrees. (Even when drawing an arc
+of 180 degrees in KiCad, it is saved with a start and end angle of 0.1
+and 179.9 degrees, respectively.)
+
+To fix this, oversized each arc needs to be broken into two (or more)
+smaller arcs.
