It's curently write in tcl/tk to validate the concept and to make it easy to 
run on all platfrom supported by pd. It will be possible and not so hard to 
port it on java or gtk+ or whatever.

That's rigth and the next one will be a canvas to allow a pd object to 
create/open some windows before drawing in them. Some rectangles, circles and 
text will follow.

That's the goal. 

Don't hesitate to contact me, seg is still very open : today it's less than 
100 lines of codes !!!
