I don't if "snip" is a good or bad thing :s

Most of the time good :) It means shortening the quoted part. I had no comments for the details (they were fine) so I just left them away to spare some lines. It's a common practice to mark large removals of quoted text as a courtesy.

I will try this script.

It may be a good base for your wizard, as you only need to manipulate ".dim" files.

Not sure what you want to do, but I think I'd
better clarify: The .dim files are _output_ files,
mainly useful for debugging and component dimension checks.

All component dimensions (w/o _any_ exceptions) comes from
the perl code, either hardcoded, tabulated or calculated.
This includes # of pins and the size and
shape of component body, pads, pins, etc.

Which components would you like to create ?
