New feature: support for Gerber job file.


Hi all,

I just committed a basic support for Gerber job file.

The purpose of a Gerber job file is to handle info needed for board manufacturing.

Because (unfortunately) Pcbnew has not actual support of the board layers stack, info about layer
stack, dielectric and copper thickness, silkscreen color, finishing external copper layers... is not
output in the job file.

However, this job file contains (among a few other useful parameters) the list of Gerber plot files
created by the plot dialog, and loading this file by Gerbview loads also all Gerber files created by
this plot dialog.

Please, try it.
