is it possible to observe the number of control surfaces?

I am trying to make my push detection patch also detect when Push is connected or disconnected. Right now I can do that by polling every few seconds or so, but it would be nice if there was a way to directly observe a control surface's addition or deletion, or simply observe the number of control surfaces.

Thoughts? Thanks!

Nope. It's very irritating. You have to poll it; with a forthcoming bugfix, you should get a [live.this_device] bang when one is added or removed, so it's not a dealbreaker.
