I don't believe bezier curves were ever implemented in the symbol
library editor.  We've been dragging along the LIB_BEZIER object for as
long as I can remember.  I don't know if anyone has been using manually
edited symbol library files or if they would even render in the
schematic and symbol library editors.  Maybe JP can shed some light on
this.  I just don't like the idea of having untested formatter and
parser code for objects that we don't and/or cannot use.
