+Some of the following interactions are timestamped, to indicate roughly
+when to expect interactions. The timestamps are [minutes:seconds] of
+total CPU time of the "eagle" process on a Q6600.
+Note: it is best not type anything else during the conversion, especially
+around the time when new dialogs may pop up. The Eagle pop-ups will appear
+unannounced and grab the input focus. Keystrokes will therefore end up in
+Eagle dialogs, changing inputs.
