The key bindings and menus are quite messy in the pd.tk. From other

to handle. Basically, there should be one spot for each platform
that defines all of the key bindings and menu structure, then that is
If someone would take this on, I'll gladly help with the tricky
bits. Another thing that would be really great would be to clean up
the preferences panels.
