[PD-dev] [PD] pd gui

There's a demo of Pd-l2ork I posted on puredata.info awhile back for OSX, but it's quite out of date by now.  I think the tkdnd lib uses the Cocoa libs while tkpath must use the old Carbon libs.

Also, if you pull from the recent git, there's a flag to spawn a Qt part of the interface alongside the Tk one.  It only spawns a lone Qt window atm, but the idea is to incrementally build out a Qt display while the old one remains operational.

  I'm allready using pd-l2ork on my linux boxes when I don't use stuff 
we can only find in pd-0.45 and greater,
particulary the ability of storing text in datastructure, and when I 
don't have to rewrite an install script.
  I'm even advising any new comer using GNU/Linux to use l2ork before he 
is disgusted by the old interface,
but they are a few, almost all people I know (and sometimes work with) 
that would use pd have OSX or Windows and have no clue about how to 
install l2ork.

This imply a very tiny collaborative field, which doesn't sound really 
reassuring, even if on screenshots this looks great.
Anyway, the use of qt looks promising and might give to me the 
opportunity of upgrading my pianoroll interface.
