I dimly remember that there was some work (Ian did that IIRC) to make the
netlist the master document and attach the schematic and PCB information to
that, with a first patch to keep the netlist up-to-date continuously.

It would probably make sense to join that effort, because any other
solution would conflict heavily with that.
