I'd like to have an ability to define named sync points between processes within fork

for example:

@startuml
    start
        fork
            :Do 1;
            == Sync 1 ==
            :Do 2;
        fork again
            :Do 3;
            == Sync 1 ==
            :Do 4;
            :Do 5;
        end fork
    stop
@enduml

so, that this would result in something like below (means that the processes must sync before doing Do 2 and Do 4):

Note: without the sync point it will result in:

There's a tedious/manual workaround.  You can insert 'labels' as spacers.  Two of them did the trick here to balance out "Do 5".

thank you, however, this manual workaround will break as you add more and more details to the diagram. I'd like an automated solution that will not require manual adjustments of the sync points alignments as your diagram evolves
