Note that this is an implementation detail, but not part of the
"specification" of Pd. The current behaviour can change any time, so
relying on the order the connections were made is a highly dangerous
patching mistake. Always use a trigger, if order matters, and order
matters most of the time, so always use a trigger, regardless of what
Matju says. ;)
