ii) auto routing of a schematic.
I would think most people would generate the schematic first and then
duplicating the PCB layout.
Some kind of crude push and shove plus automatic clearances for wires and
components is very useful for speeding up drawing and tidying up the
schematic. Even Eagle has some automatic routing help for schematic wires.
This is the kind of functionality that separates computer aided drawing
from pencil and eraser method. It can do some smart work for you and the
drawer can concentrate on the essential part. Naturally these helpers must
be optional funtionality.
For Clive, please publish your code as a branch on Launchpad.
