i would never dare to ask this, as i do it all the time (with heavy
"fixed" applications)

you just have to collect all the messages at a one point (at the sending
side); for this, the use of [inlet]/[outlet]s might be fit better than
[send]/[receive] (otoh, i usually use the [s]/[r] approach for ease of
patching, but there i write my own [mysend] which (additionally) does
the bundling of the messages.
