Common sketch library

The ability to copy sketch entities creates the opportunity for sharing commonly used 2D geometry. It's not blocks but it covers many of the use cases of blocks.

So now we can have a second window open to a sketch library and copy & paste complex shapes. Pretty cool.

I've created the beginnings of a public sketch library here.

    Good idea @traveler_hauptman Would you consider making tabs for organizing types of sketches?  I'm thinking of sketches for structural elements, for common extruded materials.

    This will be even more useful when we get parametric dimensions and configurations implemented..

    But workaround could be using comments for alternative standard dimension of structural elements..
