[PD] Cyclone To Do: list of new objects; Any help?

Sometimes abstractions prevent simple functionalities to exist, like
switching between argument values and signal input values. It's not much
about the main function of the process, but some desing issues. I'm not
sure which ones would be the perfect candidates for abstractions, but I
find that my work with abstractions is just to give a guideline on how to
code it.
