here is a first cut at the 40pin booster pack template. I made 2
versions, BoosterPack40, which has the optional J5 connector and is
2"x1.7" and BoosterPack40_min, which is 2"x1.35" and leaves the
switches accessible. Sorry, I couldn't attach this, since Gmail thinks
.lib files are EVIL :(


Things I'd still like to do:

1) add 3d-models for standard and stacking headers
2) add 20 and 80 pin options

Please let me know if there are any other mods you would like done to
make this work with your workflow.
