Nested footprints

Is it possible to have a footprint that contains a few parts the you always want to place together and then have all the parts show up on the BOM and placement files?

For example, I have a mini PCIe that I would like to place that would include the PCIe connector and the hold down standoffs. These would always be place in the same location relative to each other but would be independent items on the BOM and placement files.

What is the best way to handle components like this?

Thanks
