That's cause [trigger] is phoney shit that should've been deprecated since
Noah, because it's trying to do two jobs at once, namely the job of
ordering outputs, and the job of [b] [f] [symbol] [pointer] plus a few
quirks, without much of a reason. But I've said that before.

To me, the most compelling reason to abbreviate the triggers is that it's
the closest thing to making them disappear, among the things that I can do
without looking like I'm coming straight from the jMaxlavian refugee
