Even if you don't use the power symbol, you still have to distribute 
the refdes strings of slotted symbols manually. gschem has no way to 
know which symbols you intend to put in the same package. Yes, some 
kind of heuristics may be imaginable. Ideas have been floating on the 
mailing list. But none has been coded, yet.
