'[EE] Eagle part with multiple, identical purpose p'

I am trying to add a PCB mount spade terminal (Keystone part, similar to
1287) as an Eagle component.

Ideally I'd like two pads with a really thick PCB trace on either the
top or the bottom layer.

Laying out the two pads (called A and B in my package design) is easy.
Drawing the symbol means I need two pins, which is also easy.  I called
one P and one P@1.  This SEEMS to be the trick to tell Eagle they are
the same pin.

However, when I place it, they are not connected on the PCB.  If I
change the pins from passive to power, they are.  However, it seems that
all the P@1 pins are connected together then, which is REALLY not what I
want -- it appears it is renaming the net it connects to as "P".

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
--Michael

I'm using just different numbers: GND, GND1, GND2 etc.
Then in the schematic I'm connecting those toghether as I want to,
using straps or zero value resistors.

cheers,
Vasile
