[PD] pd-l2ork multiconnect

Many thanks for making these, Jonathan. A couple things that may 
streamline your future tutorial videos is to use Pd-L2Ork version of tidy:

1) create an object (e.g. a number)
2) duplicate n times
3) select all created number objects
4) press ctrl+y to line them up all horizontally (pd-l2ork picks the 
closest axis with horizontal being preferred when distance between both 
is the same)
5) press ctrl+y once again to space them evenly so that they don't overlap

tl;dr version: press ctrl+y twice

Another thing to point out is when you try to connect one object's 
outlets to multiple objects or multiple objects into one object's 
inlets, pd-l2ork picks the best option that yields most valid connections.

Finally, when patching two objects with many nlets (e.g. unpack n -> 
pack n), pd-l2ork will patch as many connections as possible. So, if you 
select 3rd outlet (out of let's say 5), and the 1st inlet on a 5 inlet 
receiving object, pd-l2ork will create 3 valid connections (3->1, 4->2, 
and 5->3).


Best wishes,
