Re: [PATCH] Eeschema: simulator: use dotted traces for current and phase.
This is probably introducing major feature creep, but it would be nice to
develop a dialog that allows setting the per-trace characteristics (such as
color, line type, line width, etc) that this could go in. Where we put the
accessors to it, I am not sure (it would be great if we could link it with
the legend fields). Then we can add in more configuration options there as
we implement them.
