 i've tried that: reported several bugs.  the developers of kicad
became entrenched in their own belief that their approach was
absolutely correct, superior, and that the problem did not exist.
after about a year, including input from other people who supported
the bugreport (also ignored), i went, "y'know what? this isn't worth
my time and effort".

 have you seen how oracle's attitude works out?  mysqldb, virtualbox,
openoffice - look up how those have been received by the software
libre community.
