generic export format
I am not liking the change to the generic export format that you
recently made with respect to the component pin's netlist involvement:
0) you never stated what problem you are trying to solve.
1) That information that you added is already in the file in a different
2) The file is needlessly larger.
Maybe I am alone on this issue, but I think to add the same information
twice to the file is silly. I wrote the generic export format because I
did not like the old netlist export. And now this one is like the old
one. I find this fairly de-motivating.
Please explain what the use case is, i.e. 0) and why it cannot be solved
by an intelligent loading function. I think this is about 5 lines of
XSLT code, if I am not mistaken.
