i rather don't want this to drip away into the deep ocean of pd list

this sounds very reasonable to me and (please correct me) it would
address most problems, that are currently in discussion.  i kind of feel
to be the wrong person to say that, since i haven't contributed
code-wise to all those ideas, but i think it would be good to stick that
on a wikipage (dev section on puredata.info?), if people agree on those

i hope to see more comments on this....
