I like this. ;)

This would be even better. For example in [sssad] I'm using the
singleton.pd we once made together. This implements the singleton
pattern in a naive way by just incrementing a [value] and dynamically
creating its first argument as an object, if the counter still is

Now if you use several of these and then delete the one that was
created first, you are in fact deleting your single instance of the
singleton-managed object and all hell breaks loose. Kind of. For
fixing this, a closebang would be the first thing that is needed.
