Not if it's < 0.  This is where the issue was (line 1405 in
pcbnew/eagle_plugin.cpp).  The call aModule->GetBoard() was null when
loading a library which caused the segfault.  I just added a null guard
which falls back to the <=0 width which interestingly doesn't seem to
cause any issues because the footprints looked fine to me once I fixed
the bugs.  I can certainly set the <0 line with to some KiCad internal
