[gme-users] GME tutorial question: a paradigm for routers that have a fixed setof ports?

I've been working through the long GME tutorials, and have
a question about the way "Routers" are modeled.

Suppose I want to provide the modeler with a paradigm
that includes router models that are *preconfigured* with
a standard set of ports, so that when the router is dragged
from the parts browser it is not necessary to manually add
the ports.  In other words, suppose all of my routers always
have exactly ports "e0", "e1", and "s0", and I don't want
the modeler to have model that, nor do I want the modeler
constructing his or her own router.  The modeler should
simply drag the router from the parts browser and connect
it up.

Sort of like grabbing an IC from a parts bin.

Is there a way to accomplish this with GME?

For those familiar with CoSMIC and PICML, I've looked at how
idl2picml imports IDL3 constructs and partially builds a PICML
model.  The modeler can then select components from the model
browser to build CCM applications.  The modeler can also work
with PICML constructs from the parts browser to build new
components.  So, with PICML and idl2picml you can both model
components and model with components.

That's not really what I want to do.  I would like to build a
paradigm that is good for modeling with routers, but not for
creating models of routers.
