Maybe we could put together a sort of âjumpstartâ add-on library for
new users who just want to design basic circuit schematics and get a PCB
designed.  The library would include only high-quality symbols that
adhere to the same paradigms (e.g., no hidden power pins).
You could leave out all the SPICE symbols and many of the rarely-used
special symbols since this is a library for the basic and simple
schematic->pcb workflow.
