I would also like to add, if possible:

* Separation of Value + Component Name so that KiCad can support a
heavy component library

At the moment it is impossible for KiCad to support a heavy component
library. I would be willing to look at + implement the changes
required for this. There are a few messages on this subject already
when the library editor was discussed previously, but there was no
real conclusion, just some resistance to the idea.

I would be willing to look into this again and see what is possible.
