Not sure if this was in reply to my post but yes. Several cad/cam applications do this. You tell the application what size mill bit you are using and as long as it is smaller than your hole size + tolerance it will drill the hole pretty much the same way it would create a pocket. It’s slower but if you have a hand full of holes it can be much faster than doing a second setup, third or more bit changes and setups.

Do you think, like you have 0.7mm DRILL bit (good for LEDs, for example), and you're going to MILL a 0.9mm hole for pin-header with it? ;-)
