A neat trick is to use one (!) send/receive pair for all (!) your
abstractions, but "tagging" your abstractions with an argument, that
you pass to a [route $1] inside.
An even neater trick is to use [sssad] to handle all this routing.
I'm working on a saving-tutorial which covers this in more detail.
It's almost done, attached is the preview edition.
