Tim,

Sorry for missing the original post, but theres a lot of traffic on this forum 
that makes me not reading every letter!

In fact its a job for the Lomax virtual short. Abd introduced this idea of a two 
pin SMD component with its pads nearby touching each other (separated by say 
0.01mil) and a design rule allowing this small gap just for this component a 
while ago.

I personally prefer the zero ohm resistor because it allows the bare board be 
tested with separated nets guaranteeing a star point topology in your grounds. 
With the Lomax virtual short you'll loose this ability!

Hope this helps,

Emanuel
