It would be nice if you could print multiple attributes in one single
text string, or even embedd them in some general text.

This could simply be implemented with a an escape character (backslash)
followed by the normal > sign and the attribute name.

Example:
It would enable me to put info text in schematic symbols saying things
like "I2c address (8bit) set to \>I2CBASEADDR\>I2CSUBADDR", for chips
like the PCAL9554(B/C) wich is one common symbol with separate
I2CBASEADDR for the B and C, and separate I2CSUBADDR based on 3 address
pins.
