My personal gripe is with the schematic diagrams that look like visual 
netlists--ICs with terminal points marked, but no or few actual wires 
drawn.  Downright hell trying to figure out how the thing works.

Anent this, does anyone know of a good software package that converts 
netlists to honest schematics?  I know that there's one for pSPICE, but 
I'd like one that can take a plain old test file and do the drawing. 
Sort of a troff for schematics...
