I checked the first batch of files sent out under this subject, didn't
see an update.  Found it now, looks better but whatever that huge
footprint is on the bottom left still looks uncomfortably close.  Where
are the boards going for fab?  Most places I've looked at want 25-40mil
from the edge.  Then again 4-layer process generally has smaller
tolerances than quick-turn 2-layer.

K, just wanted to make sure the board-house rules didn't cause you grief
with some of those edges ;-)

I ought to give it a try again, though I'm so used to Eagle at this point...
