    It does look that way.

    It looks like they have taken the same modular approach they did with adding colour styles, or shadow styles independently. So you can keep your master components clean, and just throw in any component inside and it will adhere to the frames padding (kinda like a box model).

    I played around with Sketch's new Auto Layout and whilst it works, you have to choose if you want the Symbol to grow left, right, up or down. Which I think was a mistake. As that means you'll have to make a Symbol for each movement type you want. Again increasing the permutations of symbols you need.

    This looks a lot more feature complete (as long as these all drop day 1).
