Gimme time :P You can reverse engineer only at some speed, you know (and
writing docs is not instantaneous, too). Also there are some difference
since I only have the A revision of the standard and it implements the

really straightforward: just teaching kicad where to look for plb09
files, teaching cvpcb to lookup the module names in them, and teach
pcbnew to import entries as modules (it already does this for some
gEDA newlib entries anyway).

Oh well, a couple hours, top, for all of that :D

What are these beast?
