i just submitted a patch against the 0.40-prerelease that adds a new 
object [initbang], which can be used to trigger a constructor in an 

this allows to have abstractions with runtime customizable constructors, 
especially variable inlets/outlets.
([loadbang] is a bit too late for such things, as it only gets called 
when the parent of an abstraction is already finished (and connections 
have been abandoned))

i think this is another important step on making abstractions objects of 
full age.

any thoughts?

what is still missing is the possibility for an abstraction to do 
something before it is destroyed.
