[chuck-users] GenX subclasses not assigning properly (using @=>)

Thanks for the help here. I think I get it, that the basic problem here is

Yes. And I feel that's counter-intuitive. When I'd say "I'm assigning Mike
to Tom's spot" and Tom would have been charged with tending the fire I'd
then expect Mike to tend the fire from there on. As it is assignment as it
relates to UGens has some of the expected effects (like disconnecting UGens
without references) and lacks others that I feel should be logical, without
options to remedy this easily without extensive planning ahead.

IMHO there is a strong correlation between the two. Versatile, powerful and
easy to grasp UGens should be good for education, for composition, for DIY
instruments and for livecoding. All of those areas have their own specific
demands but I feel this issue can be linked to all of those. I still feel
that the link between the UGen graph and the code could be extended.

Happy to have been  helpful,
