That would work, but then you have the burden of strictly keeping your
net attributes and name attributes synchronised.  Failure to keep them
synchronised would result in nasty inconsistencies between your human
readable schematic and the machine output netlist.
Are there any gschem oldtimers around who can explain the rational for
the :1 requirement ?
If there's no good reason for it I'd be happy to write a patch that removes it.
