i never worked seriously with max/msp, so i cannot compare, but from my 
experience with pd, i never had any problems with readability of my patches. 
i think there are few alternative ways to keep a patch readable than 
segmented patch chords, using subpatches or abstractions in order to create 
sections with a special functionality. sometimes i even use a 
[send]/[receive]-pair instead of a patch cord, just for readability

$0-send/receive: what would be the difference to a NOT-fake-mechanism? (i 
don't know pvar nor pv)
