[PD] inlet and inlet~

Is there a way to make an abstraction that has one inlet that takes
both signal and control messages (like osc~, e.g., or fiddle~ which
gets audio and setting info, etc.)?  It's part of the API for objects;
it seems to me there ought to be a way to do this with abstractions as
well.  I'm envisioning an inlet object that splits signal and control
into two outlets which can be parsed from there.  Something that uses
the signal and control values to do the same thing (as in osc~) might
be difficult to implement in an abstraction, but having signal and
optional settings messages go to the same inlet would add to the
abstraction-as-object nature of PD... does it exist?
