Patch: Legacy symbol read/write extraction; SCH_PLUGIN registry mechanism
Thank you for the kind, informative, and speedy responses to my previous
message about schematic library code.
Attached please find a gzipped patch generated by `git format-patch` for
initial review and comment at your ("y'all's") leisure. This patch both
extracts legacy symbol serialization into a complementary pair of
classes, and implements a plugin registry mechanism that handles things
like telling the file browser a set of filters (in addition to providing
the means of finding plugins by extension, type name, or numeric ID).
I look forward to feedback. I know there are some places that I felt a
little dirty about, and welcome the opportunity to discuss them whenever
a responsible party (e.g. the upstream author, maybe) has some time.
