Are there plans to add Constraint Manager to KiCad?
In Allegro, CM allows Design Engineers to specify physical, electrical and
spacing rules for classes, groups and nets, so that the PCB Layout Engineer
will be constrained by these definitions when working on the layout. It's
an explicit engineering note that forces the layout designer to obey these
rules rather than by word of mouth or email for the layout engineer to
