If order needs to be controlled *across* patches, then I think there
might be a conceptual problem. At least that is the case in my
patching.

If subpatcher A relies on the data of subpatcher B, then the data in A
is global, rather than local, and should be treated as such. I put
global data within the main patch, and initialize it first, before
sending out local initializations.

I strongly believe in maintaining a structured programming approach,
in which inputs and outputs to all patchers and subpatchers are
tightly controlled.

But, as I like to point out, I don’t have a degree in computer science…
