Just noticed today that Diptrace has an Eagle export feature.
Very convenient as I've just started my P2 board design in Eagle...

Sure enough, the 30-day trial let me export the P2 chip into Eagle.
It's not perfect as the pins weren't aligned with the grid and the pins were all set to "NC" when should be "I/O" or "PWR", for example.
But, I think it save me some time. I'm copying some other parts, like the crystal, as well...

Also, the 30-day trial is convenient for taking a close look at the ES board design.

    KiCAD can import eagle Ver 6.x XML files. If you can post one of those, I can see how it imports into kiCAD.
    Altium (via PCAD ASCII) into KiCAD seems to work quite well. Minor issues around pour orders, on the ones I've done.
  • Count me as another vote recommending KiCad. Eagle was always really weird to use, the recent licensing has gotten ridiculous, and KiCad has improved in leaps and bounds in the last few years, competing with Altium in some ways.
