i'll second this and would even say:
"Triggers are a must everywhere where more than one message-connection 
is made from a single outlet"

ever since trigger has known the "anything" directive this is true for 
sure. (there *were* reasons for not using [trigger] before, but these 
times are gone)

i guess 90% of all buggy pd-patches are buggy because of the not-use of 

probably we should add a "[trigger] is your friend" line to the 
pd-splash screen....
or the possibility to connect several objects to one message-outlet 
should be banned entirely - or at least make it the default behaviour 
and allow the user to switch it off (like the famous "prevent line 
deletion" short-key)
