[PD] simple dynamic instancing and connection of abstractions

[spigot] in abstraction control inlet which also takes control float to [switch~]?

In general, I try to only send controls to things which are on, yes, but I have not had major issues when that still happens. This probably depends more on what the abstractions are doing and, in the case of readsf~ and spatialization algorithms, switch~ has a much greater impact.

Don't overly optimize at the beginning. :)
