I think that it's better when the will to organise things better comes 
from inside of you rather than from the software's inability. Because the 
software isn't «sufficiently unable» compared to all the things you better 
be doing to keep your patches clean.

I also think that even in clear and simple situations, straight wires are 
somewhat annoying, and so is the process of placing objects in ways that 
look nice with straight wires.

I also think that this is very far from being in the top most urgent 
issues in Pd...
