[PD] MIDI and JACK autoconnection is a PITA...

am i the only one who thinks that non-configurable autoconnection to
jack and alsa-midi ports is a) wrong and b) a major pain in the ass?
is there a way to prevent pd from doing this? particularly in the alsa
midi case, it's a really blatant misfeature, because in the presence of
a software midi thru port, it will immediately create a parameter loop
which will make any connected midi controller go wild and burn its motors.
my preferred behaviour would be no autoconnect at all. second best
option is configurable auto-connect ports. i wonder what the rationale
behind the current behaviour is? i mean, pd is all about drawing wires,
so surely a pd user can be expected to be able to connect his/her audio
and midi ports correctly?
