I was thinking that getting this done before the new schematic loader
would help ease the transition when we get to that point.  I could be
wrong.  I was a bit premature on my previous claims anyway.  While
grepping the code today, I found a few more places where refactoring
code back in to the SCH_SCREEN object would be be time better spent and
make the transition to new containers more manageable.
