leaving the lines crossed this way also makes the construct instantly recognisable.

I find that with the addition of an occasional [t a] object and a few 
send-return pairs when they give a clearer logical layout (plus putting 
appropriate logically related sections of the code in subpatches) makes a patch 
very readable, while tracing out segmented cords in big patches in other 
languages gets tiresome.

Its all really a matter of taste ... it has come up many many times over the 
years, and nobody who could implement them seems to want segmented cords enough 
to actually do the work.
