As I have some time to think, I wonder:
Has any of you done an actual analog IC design, comprising
* (parametric) cell definition
* schematic capture
* schematic simulation (corners? Monte Carlo??)
* layout (schematic driven? manual??)
* Layout DRC
* LvS
* layout parasitic extraction
* post layout simulation
* streamout (to CIF? to GDS??)
with any of these tool chains?

In the meantime, I'm trying to get academic local access to Cadence,
so that I can separate the task of designing proof-of-concept analog
circuits from developing and maturing a tool chain.
