I have no idea how to do that.

I am presuming one can use the old "PolygonsOnly->true" command since it is
stated by Mathematica when one tries to use the old DXF package, that the
full functionality of the old DXF Add On package is in the new export
command. If someone knows how to indeed use the PolygonsOnly->True command
within the new Export method of writing to a DXF file, it would be
appreciated.
