I personally do not trust loadbangs, since there is no way to
determine the order of firing with multiple subpatchers/bpatchers.

Instead, I want to control initialization. For any patch that needs an
initialization, I have a [r initialize].

Then in the main patch, I have a [s initialize].

If I need more control, I will have a separate patcher to
initialize/fill my colls, one to initialize my values, then send the
initialize message to other patchers.
