Bug Description

Creating new schematic library components can be a tedious task. It can be a real pain to edit each pin one at a time in a part with many pins. I feel like a lot of time could be saved here since all you are really doing is copying information from the datasheet. It would be much better if the spreadsheet-like pin table were editable. I am aware of the Quick KICAD Library Component Builder at http://kicad.rohrbacher.net/quicklib.php . But it would be much better if this functionality were built in. Ideally this feature would include some sort of text parsing utility so that the information could, as much so as possible, just be cut and pasted from the table in the datasheet.
