Readable hierarchical netlist names

I am having problems building a netlist with nets annotated with the instance names rather than the instance ID.

 

I use the pcb interface generic.cfg to generate the .net and the .pkg files which i pass on to a layout engineer. The .net names look like this.

 

....

$1I1998\$1I54\DDR_ADDR21;TP347^1,U1^D10

...

 

This is a pain to view in visECAD because the nets are very difficult to search for and the review becomes very tedious.

 

In dxdesigner I have given a name to the instances $1I1998="cpu" and  $1I54="memory". It would be a lot easier to find the nets in visECAD if the pcb forward routine could use these names instead of the ID's.

 

Any suggestions?
