Currently portin is for relations going in and portout is for ones going out.

Could we add portinout (felxable on name) such that items go to the side instead of top/bottom intended for bidirectional associations.

Although this is a good idea, I'm afraid that this is not possible to implement this suggestion currently.

We are using GraphViz behind the scenes and we already made a lot of dirty tricks to implement portin and portout. Having some ports on the side is really too hard.

Sorry about that!
