Its wrong that so much work should go into the package and then the contributor
not get at least a thank you.

I have been going through a stretch where I have not been using Kicad much, but
working on weekends on it.  This morning I got chance to try the new
disambiguating menu support in EESCHEMA that Wayne wrote, loved it, and was
reminded that somebody put a lot of work into this without pay and without any

This is insane people, and I would not expect it to continue.  People should not
be expected to do this quality of work without pay.

Thanks Wayne!

I like it.  GREAT job.
