What is -rnd?

This project is part of the ringdove EDA suite. That means it is guaranteed to be usable with the other software found in ringdove, i.e. with pcb-rnd. However, all parts of the ringdove suite is written with modularity and toolkit approach and UNIXy workflows in mind so route-rnd can potentially interface other PCB editors as well in the future.
