For footprint shape that is correct -- for slots and pin numbers not. If
I currently place an OpAmp symbol, its inverting, non-inverting and
output pin have already pinnumbers, pinseq,  and slotdef attribute. An
enable or offset correction pin may exist or may not exist. So it is
better to know ahead what you want.
