The hack I use for solder jumpers is to make a footprint that is open
circuit, and bridge where needed with copper text.  DRC ignores text,
even when it is on copper layers. So placing a '-' character or a '|'
character on copper with a suitably large font provides an electrical
connection without upsetting DRC.
