Cadence and Calibre Integration

Any user wishing to have calibre.skl automatically loaded on start up of Virtuoso should add the following code into their ~/.cdsinit file. Alternativly, those wishing to only load calibre.skl for the current instance of cadence may run `load( strcat( getShellEnvVar("CALIBRE_HOME") "/lib/calibre.skl" ))` in the CIW after cadence has loaded.
