Right. I think odd naming like **~, power~ and the like cause more  
harm then if the inlets are "swapped", since they are harder to  
recall or guess for both current and new users.

And to be frank, does it really matter if it's one way or the other?  
I mean, they are both "hot". So it only a matter of what one would  
think is natural or the convention or how you'd normally use such  
function. I'm very sure i have a TI calculator floating somewhere  
where it is the "cyclone/max" way. So there is no right thing only  
preferences, and no trigger-particle issues, hence in that respect i  
can not see how it contradicts with current Pd tilde-class behavior.

just my opinion.
