Re: Ideas for kicad
I'm playing around, trying to swing-out classes of kicad & pcbnew, and it
doesn't look bad. I'll keep you updated.

I'll try to make some test modules for kicad/eeshcema, pcbnew, etc... :-)
Btw, is this the method to save a board?
* Function Save
* writes the data structures for this object out to a FILE in "*.brd"
* @param aFile The FILE to write to.
* @return bool - true if success writing else false.
bool Save( FILE* aFile ) const;
What's the one to "Load"?
May be we should add some Save(char *filename)/Load, etc to ease the
process from any scripting
