Duane - Yes, it is a layout tool ( manual drawing ). Similar to ExpressPCB's drawing tool. Great for simple breakout boards. I recommend the Eagle path for anything beyond that ( which requires schematics and autorouting ).  If you are willing to wait on OSH-Park, its a quick (effort wise ) and inexpensive ( $5-$10 ) path to making small interconnect adapter boards, etc that might otherwise be perf board or flying wires.

It looks like Copper Connection is just a layout tool. Is that correct? I'll take a look at it for this, but in general, I think I'd need the schematic capture integrated.

Max - I suggest you check out CopperConnection from robotroom.com .

Its a PCB drawing tool like ExpressPCB but exports Gerbers and Excellon files straight to OSHPark.

Small 1" 2-layer PCBs can be fabbed for $5, 4-layer for $10. Very inexpensive and easy way to fab simple shield PCBs. No Eagle size limits.
