adding PCB mounting holes in Eagle

One more question:

For single sided boards it is desirable to have a large pad size, say 70mils for through-hole components, right?

The resistors in Eagle all seem to have small pads, maybe 50 mils or so. Fine for double sided, I suppose, but a bit dicey for single sided with no plating on the through hole.

Does anybody worry about this? Is the only solution editing the component libraries?
