Thanks. As I wrote, I think the slotted forward annotation solves this 
problem. So we should test that. Please download and compile xschem - that 
is the only one schematic editor that has support for this feature.

Schedule/timing: I expect it'll be a thing early next year.

Stefan started working on features required for back annotation so xschem 
will probably have that soon. Once that's done, it's about 1 day of effort 
on pcb-rnd side to introduce the slot swapping feature and then we can 
start testing.

Then if you want these features in another schematic editor (back 
annotation and slot info in fwd annotation), you'll need to request the 
developers there to implement them. We already have the free/open file 
format specs available and soon we will have testable 
code/workflow/demonstration too.

Regards,
