What I am planning is not really related to the features you mention.
Currently we have a few files that contain multiple #ifdef
PCBNEW/EESCHEMA/etc. and is compiled many times with different
definitions, which is not the right way to go.
The final goal is to make all files compile only once. To do so, I am
moving the code parts wrapped with ifdefs to corresponding applications.
It is a refactor, without adding any new features.
We had a plan for another refactor that could be more related to your
wishes. I can give you some details, if you are interested.
