I don't believe that any of those things should be introduced before or
after the other, nor that any of those things deserves to be but a
footnote in the other's text, or anything else like that.
There is a reason for the existence of [trigger], and it's not "for
triggering things" in any traditional meaning of the word in a way that is
contrastive with what any object not named [trigger] does... the meaning
of the word "triggering" in a pd context is conditioned by the existence
of the class-name [trigger] and not the other way around.
[trigger] has been created especially for ordering things in a way that a
fanout can't, that is, visually, explicitly, and unambiguously; thus
[trigger] and the very need for ordering go hand in hand.
