My main beef with the current sub composition behaviour is that on the outside, it looks like any other node, but it's impossible to build a sub composition that has actions associated with event arrival at specific ports, which is very common among Vuo's included nodes. The sub composition I submitted with the original (but report) post was a demonstration of this issue, using a
Count node essentially inside a wrapper. Putting it inside a sub composition killed its functionality.
We need (or at the very least, I want) to be able to have better control and flexibility over events flowing into a sub composition, otherwise the ability to expand the functionality of Vuo will be limited only to people who want to program that functionality in C. That is a limitation I'm not willing to be stuck with, as it misses the point of being able to program completely in a visual environment.
The nice thing about the proposed change is that it will allow a composer to implement the old behaviour while allowing for far more complex functionality if desired.
