One trick you can use here is to create the class, then create a straight
line, attach the two ends of the straight line to two corners of the
class. Then if you CTRL-click (or middle mouse button I believe), you
can add as many connection points as you like.
Of course, if you were using these diagrams to generate code or something
it probably would be broken because you are now making connections to the
line and not the class object, but it does allow you to not make connections
at the corners.
Hope that helps,
