Yes, CadSoft is very responsive to support questions.  I never had to
call but they promptly answered emails.

I doubt that the KiCAD group has gotten to the point yet that they do
phone support but the mailing list is excellent.  When I was trying
KiCAD before I'd get answers within minutes.

I will.  This is a heater specially designed for our new line of
induction aluminum melting furnaces.  We've decided to open source the
design so the files will be on my site and Fluxeon's site.

The only thing that will go slow in the beginning will be remaking my
custom footprint library.
