okaaay.  right.  yes.  sorry, i was searching "self.corona".  of course,
properties would not show up.

interesting.  yes, on the one hand, the design and layout can be closely
tied.  on the other, they are separate.

if you separate them too much, you lose track on the layout side.

here, really, we have the same analogy - and exactly the same problem - between
PCB Schematic and PCB Layout.

often these two get out-of-sync and it is a bitch.

and you just... deal with it.
