Hmm, windoZe... :-(

Yes, This works fine, and inspired by this,
i noticed a way using receive object and sendpanel, like
  r test -> symbol -> "read -resize $1 array" -> soundfiler
and  sent ";test test.aif" from sendpanel(File menu -> Message or Ctl+m).  
however, I (maybe and others...) still need a way to choose files only by
clicking, because the ways above need key-inputs and this prevent me to use
key-inputs to controlling sounds.

Under windows, it seems this option is implemented on version0.32 not
 version0.31. (In my environment,Version 0.32 is a little bit unstable, 
though i prefer its white background and other new features.)
