I may be wrong but I thought that Eagle light was not supposed to be used for manufacturing/production?!?

I only do small production of 100 or so and don't know yet how to panelize with EAGLE. What quantity do you consider production? I don't really know if EAGLE is used in larger productions but I suspect it's true.

The Eagle Freeware page describes the limitations:

Basically, if you make money from your Eagle design then you have to pay for Eagle.

EAGLE "freeware" is not supposed to be used for for-profit purposes.  If you're going to sell PCBs, you should pony up the whopping $49 to get the "lite" version that has the same limitations without the non-profit restriction.  It is possible to get well into "manufacturing/production" without being "for-profit" (for instance, in an educational setting), but $50 is cheap moral insurance...

I doubt your definitions of both "Easy" and "unlimited"... :-(
