I know this would not solve all needs, but I assume that session manager ( I believe
project here mean session ) could set some user friendly aliases for ports on start
session and remove after close. OFC this will not solve case where two sessions are opened
simultaneously. Question was "is there any way" .. I believe that aliases are
currently the only ( portable ) way.
