I’ll add one more to the list, clearly it’s a v7 wish … layout “rooms,” like 
the Altium feature. Consider a multi-channel design where you have to replicate 
a layout several times. It would be nice to define the channel in, say, a 
hierarchical subsheet, and the layout knows that it should replicate the work 
you do for one channel across the others.

I realize that this is a completely non-trivial thing to implement, and further 
I recall some discussion about this but nobody had any real good ideas about 
how to do it.
