Conversion session transcript:

git clone https://github.com/lachlanA/eagle-to-kicad.git
mkdir <base-directory>
cd <base-directory>
mkdir eagle
cp ../gdc/sep18/* eagle
mkdir cvt

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.
