If there is a fundamental reason, which would be very strange, for
using bitmasks then let them be.
Some kind of 'layer set' is needed; at the moment a bitmask is the
simpler implementation of the concept. Also it needs to provide a way to
be loaded from an int and be serialized.

These are the requirements.

We have these requirements already.

int is the layer set, and wayne is working on serialization.

Hopefully I will be slowly ramping up to my normal KiCad work load over the next few days now that things are finally starting to settle down. I have done some preliminary investigation on the effort involved in improving the layer design in Pcbnew and will have some thoughts on how to improve it and when I can dovetail the changes in with the new file format efforts.
