In one of the early prototypes I wrote for this, I set it up so that the
connections were shared. Basically, when an object tried to open a
connection, it would check if there was already one open, and if so, it
would use that. Else it would create a new connection, which would then get
stored in the global connection object.

One thing that I would be curious about would be any collisions in using a
shared object, but I also think that should be something left to think about
in building the PD patch.
