Right, I remember that.  I just didn't use it enough to find out 
exactly how convenient navigating around different objects/inlet 
/outlets and making connections with the keyboard was.

I do remember that in Desiredata you have to actually create the 
object with <ctrl-Enter> before you are able to autoconnect 
another one, which is an unnecessary step.
