No, unfortunately not. Visualization is not the primary purpose of igraph so 
there is nothing in the current drawing code that would support node ports.
Most of the visualization code will be (or rather has been) refactored between 
python-igraph 0.5 and 0.6 (which  is the current development version and not 
released yet). Graph drawing in 0.6 will be based on graph drawer classes, and 
theoretically one could implement a custom graph drawer that supports node 
ports (e.g., by inspecting a specific edge attribute which would tell which 
ports of the endpoints a given edge should be connected to), but it is not 
likely to be an easy task.
