Just an idea about how the problem of hidden trace segments and unconnected trace ends could be remedied. Here's an example of the problem - http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11498. And here are some thoughts about adding a tool that could make manual routing a little easier. Additional ideas and/or corrections are welcome...

PCB Layout Editor
Add a tool that would find unconnected/overlapping traces and connect/merge them. Some possible rules for the automatic algorithm...
1) The merge must only occur with intersecting traces that belong to the same net.
2) Any trace segments that are completely hidden by a second "same-net" trace must be deleted.
3) Any trace that contacts another "same-net" trace must form an automatic connection.
4) A merged trace width must be additive where traces overlap but do not completely cover one another.
