Yes, it's a good idea, and I was thinking about that last year when I was
about to implement the feature for real. I had decided that wires would
have three possible drawing-modes:

 * non-segmented
 * auto-segmented
 * manually-segmented

Those three modes are per-wire, so a same patcher could contain a mix of
the three modes of wires.

I haven't really tried any auto-segmentation, but I predict that users
will want to do some manual segmentation too.
