TRL Calibration - Programmatic control

I need to do a calibration of a device with 16 paths.  I'd like to run a TRL cal for each of the 16 paths and set up 16 channels of the PNA.  I hope to have a set of TRL standards that have one block with 16 Thrus, one block with 16 Lines, and one block with 32 Reflects so that I can install the Reflect block, measure the P1/P2 reflects for each of the 16 channels (programmatically throwing a path switch between channels), install the Thru block, measure 16 channels, install the Line block, measure 16 channels.

Is this possible with a TRL cal?  The only reference I have found to measuring a cal standard seems to be written for SOLT.
