Actually, to be fair to John Doty, I was thinking the geometric
placement of nets on the schematic was unimportant. (Not that I have
been writing any code which would make that assumption affect anything.)

Consider my opinion on the matter changed though, as I've heard some
vaguely convincing use-cases. I did think that stating that the issue
doesn't matter to me was somewhat unfair though. It does.
