The only change that I suggested that I though might cause some issues
was the UI changes. The rest of it was getting the code base cleaned up
and simplified which makes life easier for developers. I really would
like to see Kicad use some of the higher level wxWidgets classes such as
the document and view classes. There is some nice undo/redo support
already built in to wxWidgets but the current Kicad design makes using
it nearly impossible. I think this is one of the features Kicad really
needs as far as the end user is concerned.

I remember seeing the button text colors finding their way back into the
annotation dialog and thinking why did I waste my time. You have some
experience in this area as well if I am not mistaken.

That was my goal was to inform everyone the changes I see as a way for
Kicad to continue to move forward. I figure if I don't get too many
objections in the next few days, I'll start moving ahead with them.
