The position of the incoming and outgoing wires is important in the 
characterising the pattern. This is most obvious if you make an 
abstraction/subpatch out of it, because it leads you to really think of 
[inlet] [outlet] as part of the pattern. In an non-abstraction/subpatch, 
you have to think about including loose wires as part of the pattern, 
which is not something that you can do with the Cut or Copy command.
