A couple of months ago, I was trying to get raw MIDI out of [midiout] 
myself. (for Sysex messages in my case)

With some advise from the list, I've learned that for reasons I still 
don't quite understand, [midiout] was not functioning for a while, then 
was fixed in relatively recent versions of Pd.

I'd be interested in knowing if you will have better results of recent 
versions of Pd. Perhaps you can turn your external into an abstraction.
