[PD] "intercepting" editing messages?

hello again pd people, does anyone know how/if you can listen to the 
messages that get sent to the pd object when you do editing on an open 
pd canvas?  my brother has a really cool project in the works that he 
needs to do this for, we've poked around a little and havn't seen 
anything glaringly obvious.

i'm assuming that this is the way things work:  tcl/tk sends raw 
controller info over a tcp pipe to the pd core, which then coverts that 
into pd messages (actions like cut, select, select file menu, etc) ... 
so, if i'm correct, is there a way to "sniff" those messages and use 
them for my own neffarious purposes?

thanks again,
