You are welcome. The reason I have been doing all of the code cleaning
is to update the component properties and pin properties dialog boxes
for the library editor. I originally started down that path and quickly
realized that the component library code need some love. Otherwise, the
dialog changes I was making would have been a maintenance nightmare and
I prefer to avoid that as much as possible.

Since the response to my suggestions about the component library file
changes have been positive, I will start working on that as part of my
next round of improvements.
