Subject:[pcb-rnd] cleanup changes in brave mode
Hi all,
since we are still in the cleanup phase, I decided to make a few changes 
on features that were accessible via the brave mode. Mostly changing a few 
tiny detail between opt-in/opt-out/permanent.
1. always enforce clearance on move
We had this feature since mid december; I did announce it but never got 
any feedback so I am not sure if anyone really tested it. Now they will as 
I am inverting the brave setting: by default move operations when 'enforce 
object clearance' is on will also bump when reaching existing other-nets, 
just line drawing new trace.
If you run into problems with this, you can temporarily turn it off in the 
using the action called brave. 
(Next step will be removing the brave opt-out option)
2. removed NOCLIPBATCH
This was a last resort option to disable an optimization about batching 
polygon clipping in some operations to speed up the calculations. We have 
had the clip batch mode default on for almost exaclty a year now and I 
never got any bugreport on it so I regard this feature safe and the brave 
mode to opt-out not necessary anymore.
Best regards,
