That was possible with Eagle 5 (and probably earlier), but is no longer
necessary since Eagle 6, as the native file formats (schematic, board, and
library) are now XML.  This was a huge advance for anyone who wanted to
write tools to manipulate the files. I've both edited the files by hand,
and written Python programs to generate and manipulate Eagle files.

Of course, KiCAD uses open file formats, so I'm not touting that as an
advantage of Eagle over KiCAD, but it is an advantage of Eagle over other
proprietary EDA packages.
