Hi Jim,
        yes I realize that the netlist import would not be too
straightforward but considering ECAM can take gerbers and turn them back
into an intelligent database I am sure that you could do such a trick.
Possibly it was just using the gerber netlist generation that I am
recalling. I will have to keep my eyes open for anything on ECAM and brush
up on their capabilities for future reference.
