Bug Description

I would like to make the following Feature Suggestion for eeschema.
When "Place net name - local label" it would be really helpful for eeschema to offer already placed local labels to pick from. This would insure a typo did not cause the user to create an extra net.
It would also make the placement of multiple labels go much faster.

Thank you for the software and consideration of this suggestion.
