A lot of people like Designspark, but it's output is tied to the fab house isn't it?

Apparently not -

"Free from practical constraints on board size, pin counts, layers and output types, DesignSpark PCB can be used for schematic capture, PCB layout and generating manufacturing files.

Multi-page schematic designs are supported, gerber (extended) outputs allow the designer to choose who will manufacture their board.

DesignSpark PCB supports the importing of Eagle design files and libraries.  See the Eagle import tutorial for further information."

That sounds promising that, if it can export Gerbers and import Eagle (so you can grab designs off the web, most of them are Eagle format) that's about all you need in a package. I haven't used Design Spark but have heard good things about it.
