Correct me if I am wrong, but I think what you want is a single line
isolation pass which can be achieved by checking the box in
pcb-gcodesetup.ulp as shown below and use the standard etching
files. No manual work to speak of.

Hey fellow pcb millers! I just tried an alternate method of milling my
isolation cuts. Rather than using the etch file generated by pcb-gcode, I
drew my own lines on the milling layer. This allows me to maximize the
amount of copper left on the board and minimize the amount of cutting
needed. The down side is, it's a lot of manual drawing and I can only
draw the lines for the top or bot layer (all milling layer items in eagle
are generated for top and bot layers). For this board all my components
are through-hole, so I used the top-etch and bot-mill files.
I have attached a couple screen shots showing what I mean, they are both
for the bottom of the board. Is there a way of generating these type of
isolation cut files instead of me drawing them manually? Does anyone do
something similar? This just occurred to me, maybe I could use the text
layer for the other side of the board if I don't want any actual text
