ah sure - this is very logical
the problem with the separators is, that it makes modular programming
(abstractions via patches) uncomfortable.
i do not think, that it is a very good idea, to send the
GemList-pointers via send/receive (on the other hand:: this looks like a
good idea, now that i write it...) couldn't switch on/off the geos
seperately (but then i had problems doing so when using long-time
(weeks.months) gem-things

and i didn't think of manipulating the pixdata
