I also miss the Edit->Change->Swap Pins feature in Protel PCB v2.8.

I used this feature extensively on some boards that had to be hand-routed
and optimized for 2-layer.  It was necessary to:

1)  draw a preliminary schematic with connector pin assignments unmade
2)  bring it into PCB
3)  manually add pins to nets, swap pins, and route on the connectors
4)  go back and fix the schematic to match the PCB

If I have to do this again on a new job, I may go back to 2.8 for that job.
