[PD-dev] even more confusion?

hi Guenter,

thank you for a clarification... and sorry:  it was probably me
to cause all the confusion...

The best way of showing that I mean so, would be attempting to
improve receive's handling of the 'set' message -- but I do not
know how to do it right.

The main trouble is how to sense which 'set' is remote, and which
has come via an inlet.  It might be done by not binding a [receive]
itself to a symbol, but binding a proxy object instead.  However,
it would involve a complete rewrite of the class, and this is
something which should involve much better understanding of the
'core' than mine!

Hoping you are well now, and there is still some time left for
your holidays,
