Question about the group node

Is there any way to have new groups have their inputs named to match the output socket of the node outside of the group rather than the node inside of the group?

I have a multilatyr exr node with 20 outputs, and each of its outputs are connected to a mix node’s image input. When I create the group from the mix nodes, all of the inputs are labelled as ‘image’ rather than DiffDir,DiffIndirect,GlossyDirect, etc. Bit of a pain having to manually go through them all and change their names.

I’ll probably tackle it in python, but just wanted to check if there already exists a way, maybe an existing addon?
