After my initial enthusiasm has faded I must also say, that certain
patching habits now fail miserably. 

I'm used to moving the mouse in advance to where I want to put the next

 [0\  [0\  [0\  [0\  [0\  [0\  [0\ 

Traditionally I'd do a sweeping movement with the mouse going left to right
and sometimes press "Ctl-3" and click.

I guess I would prefer auto-connections and auto-alignments happen
afterwards, e.g. I create these
