My proposal:
Make all endpoints point-like. There is no point in having a direction 
of an endpoint. (pun intended) Put a blob with configurable size and 
color at the end of every pin. Make it stand out by default. This is a
cue whose purpose is to be a visible reminder that there is an open end 
dangling in the circuit.

This eye-catching marker should not print (in postscript).

While at it: The marker should _not_ scale with zoom. Make this behaviour 
default, but optional. So the old behavior can be restored.
