You might find the "choice" object useful. It's an extern in the "extra"
directory of the Pd release. The basic idea is you give it a bunch of
vectors (expected behaviors) in advance. Then you give it a real "behavior"
from a visitor (for instance) and it tells you which if the pre-stored
ones is closest to it. So you can use it for a simple classifying tool.
