Bug Description

It where nice to have the possibility to load a background image in pcbnew to have the traces from scans of pcbs loaded in the backround to reroute them, possibly with the feature of generating an actual netlist and a schematic (later). A similar feature possibility exists in the simple german "Sprint Layout" program.

+ Feature: loading a background image in Pcbnew

this will sure help people keep old electronics alive

i had to fist use sprint layout to get the tracks

i had the schematic for my project in eagle

i imported the gerbers from sprintlayout in to the eco layers and traced on top of that

but it will always introduce some degree of error in placement when using more than one program
