Hehe, it's going to end up as the semi-annual PCB CAD war :-)

For the record, while I can see Nils' point, I have had all good 
experiences with EAGLE CAD libraries, and checking an existing library 
part seems no worse than creating a new one.  And, having laid out 
numerous parts, I dislike doing it at all.

Vanessa keeps trying to convert me to the gEDA camp, FLOSS and all.  I'm 
a GPL/BSD kinda-guy, but there's just too much still missing from it for 
my tastes.

So, I'll park myself in the EAGLE camp for now.  I will happily admit 
the user interface leaves some to be desired, and that KiCAD would be my 
next choice.
