the memory leak is about leaking connections, so it is only relevant if
you do *lots* of (re)connects.
the actual transmitted data does not leak.

as the author of iemnet, i'd say "of course".
as a Pd-purist, i'd say it's *far* better to to fix the *vanilla* objects.

at least, with Pd-0.48 you can use iemnet together with
fudiparse/fudiformat to build a fully compliant wrapper for
netsend/netreceive, so you can have a temporary workaround until the
core objects are fixed.

btw, the error in netsend has been fixed in the update/0.48-0 branch,
but netreceive still leaks some memory on each reconnection...
