The way to promote gedasymbols and to fix the default library is to
remove the default library, except for a small set of very generic

I do use some symbols from the defaul library, generic resistors,
capacitors, transistors, switches, but nothing else. Basically only the
very generic drawings.

The first thing a new user shall (have to) learn is making symbols, and
(for a pcb workflow) footprints, or (for a simulation workflow) models,
because, as John said, it cannot be done right for everybody, so we
shall not try, and if it were possible, nobody wants to to the work
