o codes and grbl

I've got a Sienci Mill One which runs grbl on an Arduino Uno. I know grbl only supports a sub-set of g-codes and am wondering if LinuxCNC would do any post-processing of o codes such that I could write 'g-code' using O codes and have a .ngc output file generated which would be valid grbl?

I'm starting to write g-code by hand to learn what's going on with my mill, and am hoping there is some way to write concise g-code (using subroutines etc) which will still convert to valid grbl. Will LinuxCNC (or any software) be able to do this?

LinuxCNC does exactly the same job as GRBL. So it won't be able to help.
LinuxCNC is a consumer of G-code, not a producer of it.
