Both of these.  We'd need a file format change, editing code, display
code, DRC changes, autorouter changes, optimizer changes, connectivity
checks, buffer conversions, etc.

It is generally agreed that, if we're going to do that much work
anyway, it would be better to redesign the internals to have a concept
of "sub-layout" and have elements just be a special case of those.
