Actually, it doesn't do the same.

But it's harder to do, because [multireceive] doesn't have a help file at 
all, whereas [receives] has http://gridflow.ca/help/receives-help.html

For the problem we were talking about, [multireceive] fits the problem 
more directly.

However, [receives] is more geared towards local receivers, with automatic 
joining of a prefix (such as «$0-») from receive-symbols.

The job that I do using [receives] (managing a lot of iemguis) would have 
taken many more objects if I had been trying to use [multireceive] 

With [receives], pd feels a lot more like it supports local-symbols.
