What is the point of the command Make Inv Text Vis in gschem, other than
aggravating me.

Good question. I'm not aware of a use-case for it either. At the very
least, it should be undo-able.  Please file a bug report.

Lets kill it with fire.

One use-case would be to quickly inspect all of these attributes. It makes a difference wether you see attributes in a seperate sheet vs. you see them right next to each symbol.

For making this use-case, this command should actually do what it says: make invisible text visible, i.e. leave everything stored in the schmatic's file untouched. Instead, it sets the visible flag on all texts, which is nonsense, of course.
