interesting , i just read your post .  i am sure i exactly follow it but i
understand what you are generally saying .. when i can think a little bit ,
i will read read it .  i noticed that you offered the patch for
incorporation into pd ,  has miller added this in to pd yet ?  or does he
want the bang system to work how it does for some reason ...

hmmmm .. might be worth proposing a cvs system for the pd where updates can
be submitted by any one in a systematic and timely manner ?  not sure if
this was talked about already .
