Can a person use the "demo" version of Orcad to create this EDIF format from an
arbitrarily large project native file set?
(I am assuming EDIF is not the native format, correct me if I am wrong.)

If not, how does a person with access to only free tools get a design from Orcad to
KiCad?  Can that native format be reverse engineered, a) technically, b) legally?

In answering b) is it location specific?

How does this tool differ from the one that Frank Bennet wrote and that is now in the
"contrib" branch?
