I think widget is great, I think of this as building upon that.   
Combining Federico's tclpd + [widget] means writing full-fledged  
native Pd objects in Tcl/Tk.  Federico mentioned a problem with  
[widget] in that the code runs only in the GUI process, he can speak  
to that more.  I'd like to see native objects rather than scripts in   
the [widget] object.

Both are worth doing, want to help? :)
