Re: Atomic Libraries Proposal

The major limitations of the specification are:
- The atomic library does not contain symbol or footprint data
It's not a limitation, i's a great benefit - you can use same single footprint/symbol file to many components and fix it in one place without need to remember which other components use same symbol/footprint

Major limitation is that your proposal still does not provide mapping between symbol pins and footprints pins, so user has to keep separate footprints for, say, sot23 bipolar, FET, Zenner and IC which differ in pins names only.
