Well, assuming we actually record *all* the data.  My point was,
whatever data we care about, we do the least amount of processing on,
unless the backend asks for it.

I didn't expect *everything* to be read in *exactly*.

That would be "back-annotation info".  In my world, PCB asks for the
netlist, so it needs to figure out how to tell gnetlist what its data

Right, but gnetlist needs to know about, for example, pin swapping.
