I don't think you fully understood John's suggestion -- or perhaps I
misunderstood.  The software can follow a few simple rules to achieve
most of this automatically as the user is drawing:

1. if a track is started at a pin/pad the track inherits the netname of
that pin/pad;

2. if a track is started in free space it has no net association; and

3. if a track that has no net association is subsequently connected to a
pin/pad or net-associated track, the track inherits the netname of that
pin/pad or track.

Regards,
Chris
