With the object, yes, but with the canvas methods I'm not sure the logic
applies, as they would give the user a much easier way to design dynamic
patches that cannot be implemented by a solution using separate classes.

But the difficulty of parsing the A_GIMME for something like "connectany"
may make this a theoretical rather than practical distinction.
