This is very cool, keep us posted on your progress!  I am thinking of  
trying to write an IRC client in Pd.  Then there could be an embedded  
IRC client in Pd-extended that is tied into the help system.  You  
click a link on a help patch, it opens a chatroom and posts the  
context of the patch to the chatroom.  That would help out the  
newbies, who often have trouble knowing what to ask.
