Segmenting, coloring, and/or hiding the patch cords aren't going to magically make every patch clear and easy to follow. Once a patch gets to a certain level of density it is time to rethink how the whole thing is structured or find a different tool. Abstractions and subpatches help quite a bit, but at a certain point going 11 windows deep to find or fix something is nearly as ridiculous as cramming everything into a single spider webbed window.
