the thing about names, [trigger~] was actually a threshold detector, but I
couldn't use [threshold~] cause Pd uses it. I could also go for an
abbreviation, such [thresh~], but cyclone has one object named like that.
Since I don't want name conflicts with cyclone (cause I maintain it too).
Not only that, but as far as name precautions goes, I'm not taking any name
that belongs to any external from good old Pd Extended, that makes it hard.

So, [togedge~] was also a name that related to [togedge] from Max, but it
was a bad name and a bad relationship (cause max also has [edge~]). So
yeah, I couldn't use [edge~] either... Anyway the only solution I found
after struggling a lot was to have an object with a name that I also hate
called past~, that sends an impulse when you go past over a threshold and
another when it falls below it.
