 i'm not going to ask them, they're very busy, and KiCAD is something
i cannot work for these complex projects, with due to numerous bugs
and the lack of "built-in checking".  i rely heavily on creating
groups (power lines for example), setting detailed design rules on
each group, so that i do not have to check every single one of
thousands of connections round hundreds of components.

 once these complex boards are out of the way and i have time and the
financial luxury to invest in KiCAD i'll come back to it.
