Don't forget that the library module files must also be
in these new units.  Also, some way of resnapping metric
parts to their true positions (e.g. BGAs with metric pad
spacing) needs to be done.

If we can get to the point that some of the legacy stuff
is removed, I would like to find some point at which a
good baseline exists for an experimental branch.  Then I
can rebase the work I did a year ago on this new
experimental branch (minus the legacy stuff of course)
and we can start making pcbnew a superior tool.

The only other legacy change that I ran into that I
changed a year ago was the number of layers and their
representation.  You know, the 32-bit bit mask for
layers.  I don't know whether that should be done
against "testing" or "experimental"?
