Handling Socketed Parts in EAGLE BOM

  1. I produced a board description using EAGLE. The prototype is here,
    and I'm detailing a component order.

    I have socketed a few of the parts, and the sockets don't appear
    anywhere in the EAGLE files. I wish that those files were so complete
    that the BOM was complete without editing.

    I'm very comfortable with my ability to use EAGLE, I have even
    produced a few parts from the data sheets, and the authentic part
    works on the resulting board.

    I have made a schematic named socket with no pins, and produced a
    package with no pads, and a device that combines them. The device can
    be added to the schematic, but is not visible. It does show up in the
    BOM.

    Are there better ideas?
