Please hold off on pushing any more feature changes until I get a chance
to review and test them.  I was actually going to suggest merging the
zone grid fill patch first because I already reviewed and tested it back
when you originally submitted it.  I'm going to leave the pad chamfer in
but I want to see what impact Tom's rtree code will have before we merge
any more new features into pcbnew.
