I've put the new layers up as "coming soon"

As Dick has pointed out, Copper and Component were changed quite a
while ago to be Front and Back instead which are more reasonable layer
Oops..Dick was right. I believed my old wiki notes even though I look at the new names daily - glad to see this filtered in.

The one term that still annoys me in EEschema is "value" - it seems to suggest that one should use it for the value of a resistor instead of the part name - as if one used a single part for all values of a 0805 resistor - just the value field changed for different ohm values.

In Pads logic, I think the name-of-the-part field was called "name". In pcad it is "type" and value in pcad refers to the foot-print.

Looking forward to these new layers.
