Perhaps because the other commercial PCB tools all hate Cadsoft for
making a program that's far cheaper than the others. And while it's
more limited in some ways, it's far better in others. (I could create
new device definitions in an hour or so for a 120 pin device --
something that seemed to take professionals days or weeks with the
high-end tools they were using...)
However, Eagle can produce PostScript output, which you should be able
to import into other tools, perhaps by way of a trip through some 2D
CAD or illustration tool.
I just tried that -- the "CAM tool" in Eagle produces a PS file that
Adobe Distiller, Adobe Illustrator, and *bletch* CorelDraw all handle
