Hi Jeff,

Here's the branch, rebased on the latest master:


What's missing is (probably there's more):
- the library viewer doesn't display the components,
- missing GAL-based preview widgets in the dialogs (component chooser, etc.)
- misaligned pin/text labels
- wrong rendering order in the library editor/occasionally in eeschema
- printing using cairo (Orson's working on it for pcbnew, as soon as his
code's done we can use it in eeschema).
