With todays chips there is simply no room for all pin functions. I get by
simply with those functions that are active during the chips power-on
Reset. With FPGAs those function names come from the design so
you have to customize the symbol for each bit image and forget about doing
a large chip in a single symbol, partial symbols are the norm.
