so what is wrong with a toggle sending things ?
even though tim does not want to hear an explanation of toggle, i will
give one here (just to clearify things)
if you send a float ("1") to a toggle via it's inlet, it will set it's
state and send out the float to the outlet + to the send-label
if you send "set 1" to a toggle, it will set its state and stop.
if you send a float to a toggle via a *receive*, it will set it's state
and send out the float (to the outlet AND) to the send-label.
there is one (1) exception: if the send-label equals the receive-label
the output is supressed (to avoid loops)
a "1" *is* sent to the "mitte"-button (as explained in the other mail),
and it reacts accordingly.
