... and even that is optional in the newest (cvs) version of
[any2string], e.g. by instantiating as [any2string 0 -1].

in the most recent cvs version, there also ought to be
moocow/any2string-help.pd and moocow/string2any-help.pd.

this was indeed the original motivation of [pdstring], which is, was,
and likely ever will be just an ugly hack.  My personal opinion is that
Martin's solution is much more elegant, and more promising in the long
run.  Hopefully, at some point I'll be able to implement [any2string]
and [string2any] as simple wrappers around [str], but I haven't gotten
around to trying it yet ;-)
