Hi Wayne,

I fully agree about the C++ part, but I would object doing it in Python
given the current state of pcbnew's Python support. It's not mature
enough IMHO to allow development of large plugins.

BTW - I guess the plugin part is rather trivial compared to the actual
solver, which I believe is not Kicad-dependent?
