This gave me an idea, and it turns out that someone already wrote a Ruby
gem for reading Eagle schematics files. I now have the beginnings of a
little Ruby commandline tool "eaglegrep" that combines all the parts used
in all specified schematics, and optionally searches on the part name:

$ bundle exec exe/eaglegrep partsgrep BC..7

The description is there in the schematic file too but it requires more
connecting of dots because each part references a device set and technology

I'll keep bashing at it and make this available on Github when it's a
little more useful. I like the idea of running an audit tool across all of
my projects at once, rather than interactively in Eagle, one at a time
