Legacy symbol library support in master


The new file formats seem to be coming along pretty well so I wanted to
give everyone a notice that I will be disabling support for saving to
file formats at the end of May unless something drastic changes between
now and then.  This will allow us to start merging new schematic and
symbol library features into the development branch.  Since the legacy
symbol file format would lose this information, all legacy symbol
library table entries will be made read only.  Only the new file format
libraries will be editable.  This means that if you want to continue to
edit legacy libraries, you will have to keep a copy of the stable 5.1
branch on you system.  Thank you for your patience during this transition.
