frEDA SPICE 3: KiCad components

KiCad ships with a small library of SPICE components (installed as /usr/share/kicad/library/pspice.lib  in Debian). It's nice that it does because it lets you do some basic testing with little investment. However the library has a couple shortcomings:
  1. Many SPICE primitives are absent (e.g. controlled sources).
  2. Some of the components could look better (i.e., more consistent with IEEE or IEC specs).
So, yesterday I began to implement a new library based on the existing one. As soon as it's anywhere close to complete I will publish it in a source code repository somewhere.
