hans is reading the list so it has already been sent to him.
apart from that, i think that people should stop using [spigot~]:

- it does something different than [spigot], so it's name is confusing. 
(how about [demultiplex~] or [demux~]? this name is already taken by 
zexy, but low and behold, zexy's [demux~] without arguments is compatible!)

- a [spigot~] that is used a signal replacement for [spigot] can also be 
written as [*~]. the latter is shorter to write (why does nobody 
complain about the missing [multiplication~] object?) and does not trick 
the user into believing that signal-processing is paused (and cpu-cycles 
are freed) ([spigot~] is not [switch~])
