Unfortunately, this part has a major flaw.

It wrongly models the size of the electric connector
to be identical to 765c01.dat.

However, this is not true.
Please have a look at the systematics table
http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=parts/x567c01.dat

The Types 1 and 2 have a SMALLER pin diameter.
Thus, they don't fit into Type 3 and 4 sockets (the pins are too small). Vice versa, type 3 and 4 pins DO NOT fit into type 1 or 2 sockets.

This is an old LEGO annoyance I frequently experienced when
I was a child.

Should use plug12.dat IMHO

This file needs to become a part, not a subpart.
(Because e.g. software that adds seams between parts does this only
between parts, but not between parts and subparts.)

I now after a much too long time had the chance to
check the sizes of the electric 12V plugs Types 1,2,3,4
against each other at my old collection at my parent's.
I was wrong here. My above claim that the older plugs have
a slightly smaller diameter than the newer plugs is wrong.
In fact, both plugs can be combined. The older ones are manufactured
a bit differently, so that they do fit only very tightly or only
very loosly, but these are manufacturing issues. My above claim
about the different size thus was wrong.

I'm keeping the hold, though, because this file needs
to be renumbered from a subpart to a part. It is a separate entity.

I'm very sorry, but we need to resolve another question first:
are the three files
u9018.dat
u9019.dat
u9146.dat
really 3 different parts? and not the same?

Their origin individually is the refacturing of our plug parts:
they got factored out from former one-file-assemblies.

Now it is the time where we need to decide if they must be unified.

u9146.dat is definetely different (shorter) and is okay that way.
the question reduces to: are u9018.dat and u9019.dat the same?

we need to decide if u9018.dat and u9019.dat are duplicates
or need to exist as separate parts

Made u9018.dat, u9019.dat, u9134.dat, u9146.dat similar.

Retitled all 4 files to make it clearer to which plug
each pin currently belongs.

Added (Needs Work) to title to be able to release this
even if we have not yet decided on if one or more of
u9018.dat, u9019.dat, u9134.dat, u9146.dat
need to be unified. It is more important to get this out
with updated file structure. The merging can be done
at a next iteration.

Existing certification-votes were deleted.
