[PD] lua scripting for pd objects

sorry to switch in so late, but let me mention another approach. if you
only have numeric arguments for your abstractions, you could
alternatively still use [repeat] and read the different values from
a/several table/s. that is what i usually do, when i need - let's say -
1000 cuboids at different positions with different colours. like this
you wouldn't need thousands of instances of a certain abstraction, but
only one, where you send thousands of messages to for each frame.
don't know, if this would work for what you want, though...
