Bug Description

It would be hepful when adding pins to a component symbol that pin numbers are automatically assigned (As in PCB footprint editor).
This could also be applied to pin name when it's ended by numbers, i.e. Addr1

I think that just implementing the "Repeat Last Element" (not sure about the name) function of eeschema ("insert" button by default) into the symbol editor would be quite nice to begin with.

IIRC it is already there. If you place a pin and start pressing Insert you will get multiple pins with consecutive numbers assigned.
