Connection Database - Nicholas Zurn - 2014-11-14

What ever happened with the "LCD - LDraw Connection Database"?? As seen here.

Seems like this would have been a good thing.

Currently, programs solved this problem independently.
* SR3DBuilder
* LDCad
* maybe more I forgot here

This reminds me that I would like it better if ldraw.org ITSELF would provide the connectivity
data, the same way we provide the parts.
For me, it would be best if the connectivity information would be contained INSIDE the part file itself.
Studs, for example do not need to be put there, their connectivity is clear and can be directly
used by a program. But if a part has "special" "other" connectivity types, IMHO the part file itself
should carry that information.
