Slot numbers and their influence on pin numbers can safely be ignored 
in the first stages of schematic capture. With single/dual/quad 
packages it is not that simple. No algorithm could reliably guess what 
the designer wants -- which symbols to merge, which pair to choose from 
a quad. The best gschem might do, is to offer a way to achieve these 
goals with a minimum hassle. Maybe some kind of multiple symbol mode.
(I smell the scent of a feature request ;-)

Regarding offset correction, you better do. If used, the offset needs 
extra components and nets.
