heh :-)

... actually looking at that cleaned up version, now *i* can't figure out 
what's going on :-/ although to be honest, i could only barely figure out 
what was going on when i was writing it in the first place, so that's not 
surprising. doing logic with dataflow languages is so heinously complicated...

personally i find sends and receives to be a mixed blessing. on the one 
hand they get rid of unnecessary patch cords, but on the other hand they 
make it much less clear to see what's going on with the execution order. 
(what happens to the execution order when you do a message send/receive, 
anyway? do the send/receive pairs act exactly like patchcords, or is a send 
considered a leaf in the depth-first traversal tree?
