@ChristophZ: I was giggling constantely remembering the many many hours sitting in front of the computer moving around stupid lines with dump tools.

When I started out in the early 1980s, you didn't even have the ability to *move* tracks -- you could  place vias and you could use the digitizer to add track segments -- but all you could do was *add* or *delete* things -- we dreamed of being aboe to *move* things LOL

Also the way in which it wraps/bends the ends of the differential pair tracks around the pads and vias to fine-tune the lengths and phases.
