well, especially being an artistic tool, it shouldn't require the user
to learn 1001 workarounds for trivial problems, nor should the user have
to worry about obscure message vs. list problems ...

i'm not sure, if anyone can say, what pd is meant to be ... but matju is
right about one thing ... pd can't be improved, when everyone ignores

don't need to use tables on the x86_64 architecture") ...
