i have to object to being called either "sissy" or "real man". my gender 
is not an issue to this list.

as for readability, you are surely right.
that is why i use [trigger]s everywhere (even if message-subtrees are 
"asynchronous"), this is why there is a [nop~] object, --- my, am i cool 
  -- and this why i really have considered including a [pak] object 
"like i understood it at the first glance": like an upside-down trigger 
(e.g. several inlets that immediately are output to one outlet (not 
forming a list; just multiplexing the messages))

but thank you for pointing this out and please accept my apologies for 
my improper way of writing.
