 * These types and functions support the task of generating and
 * writing out an EDIF 2 0 0 netlist. These functions work by
 * supporting the creation of an in-core netlist of the design, then
 * writing the netlist out all at once. The library manages cells with
 * ports, but does not otherwise interpret cells. They have no
 * contents.
 * The general structure of netlist creation is as follows:
 *   Create a netlist with edif_create(<name>);
 *     This creates an edif object that represents the design. The
 *     design is given a name, and that name becomes the name of the
 *     single cell that this netlist handles.
 *   Add ports to the root with edif_portconfig
 *     The design may, if it is a macro to be included in a larger
 *     design, include ports. These are discovered by looking for port
 *     signals in the root module.
 *   Declare external libraries with edif_xlibrary_create
 *     Normally, this is the single technology library that contains
 *     the primitive cells that the code generator intends to
 *     use. The library is given a name, such as VIRTEX or whatever
 *     the implementation tools expect. Cells are attached to the
 *     library later. An edif netlist may include multiple external
 *     references.
 *   Declare primitives with edif_xcell_create and edif_cell_portconfig.
 *     These functions create CELL TYPES that are attached to an
 *     external library. The libraries are created by
 *     edif_xlibrary_create.
 *     Cells can be created at any time before their first use. It
 *     therefore makes the most sense to not create the cell until it
 *     is certain that they are needed by the design.
 *   Create instances and join them up
 *     The edif_cellref_t objects represent instances of cells, and
 *     are the devices of the generated netlist. These cellrefs are
 *     connected together by the use of edif_joint_t joints. The
 *     joints can be created from ivl_nexus_t objects, or from their
 *     own ether. This instantiating of cells and joining them
 *     together that is the most fun. It is the technology specific
 *     stuff that the code generator does.
 *   Finally, print the result with edif_print(fd);
 *     This function writes the netlist in memory to an EDIF file on
 *     the stdio stream specified.
 * This library is intended to be used once, to build up a netlist and
 * print it. All the names that are taken as const char* should be
 * somehow made permanent by the caller. Either they are constant
 * strings, or they are strduped as necessary to make them
 * permanent. The library will not duplicate them.
