If I export a parts list from LTSpice in Pads2000 Format

is it possible to back annotate the schematic?

When I read "FreePCB" in this thread, *Back-Annotation*
was the first thing that came to my mind with this piecemeal approach.

In a similar vein to FreePCB's author, Allan Wright,
describing making DIY netlists from e.g. a hand-drawn schematic,*.*.*.under.Linux.*.using.Wine+Importing.Netlist.Files.into.FreePCB+1A+A1A+Microsoft.Windows+netlist.file+*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.*.will.have.*.make.the.netlist-*-*-*.*+schematic.editor+*.*.*.tedious+Allan.Wright+*.Macintosh-*-*-*-*-*-*+*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*.*
this can quickly lose its appeal.
