I liked being able to do pin swapping in v2.8.  This was useful when
manually routing a PCB and optimizing the layout for no signals crossing
over/under other signals.  I could assign connector pinouts on the fly by
swapping connector pins.  Of course, the schematic has to be updated
afterwards.

Bring back the pin swapping!  Gate swapping is not important to me for the
reasons Tony mentioned.
