Thank you for this file. This was, by far, the ugliest, most broken Eagle file I've ever seen that still works correctly in Eagle.

I've fixed the worst offenders here. But I'm going to open a new issue for this as the symbols don't look right. Clearly there are still Eagle v6 differences we don't account for.
