Re: Bug 1754130
Eagle is also very limited in that regard. But at least they can create
a 32x32 matrix with clearances.
Converting a PCB with contraints works (except the clearance matrix),
but unfortunately many of the nets in the design I converted were unnamed
nets. At the first conversion from the schematic all those nets lost
their netclass. I'll cleanup the patch I have, hopefully tomorrow.

I do not remember exactly how net classes work in Eagle, but if you can
specify there anything that is supported by KiCad (track width, via
size, etc.) then it makes sense to handle at least that part. We can
implement the remaining settings as soon as the DRC receives the planned
