Re: kicad PCB arrayer tool for multiple instances of schematic sub-sheets



nice tool. Although I am kind of sceptical about the whole Ocaml story :-) 
Although your motivations (from a developer's point of view) may be 
understandable, this is pretty sad from a user's point of view:

Basically, it adds even more dependencies to KiCad - given that most average 
users are interested in kicadocamls features, which I think they should be, 
because they do look really interesting. So what I am saying is that this 
increases the entry burden for the average user.

The pros of ocaml you name ("quicker to add features") seem to vanish once we 
have python support in KiCad. So maybe that would be a better long-term
