Personally I prefer to have only a limited number of receivers in my
patches and then use [route $1]  or so after that them filter out
messages intended for a certain part of my patch. (I used the same
approach in [sssad] where only two global receivers are used regardless
of how many parameters are managed.) Also you could double the receiver
with an [inlet] to have local control as well.

In your case you would then have a single place that you could block
with a [spigot] at the same time that the gemhead is turned off.
