Some notes about 0.6.3 :

I still have no evidence the aforementioned problem actually exists. I've
had one report and assumed it was something else... however that
"something else" only occurred when reinstalling from a shared filesystem
when the clock is not synchronised, and that i was reinstalling too
often... Ruby's installer will only install a newer file on top of an
older file. I can circumvent that if people think it's a good idea to.

Now, another thing: I have gotten almost no feedback about this version of
GridFlow. There's something I might not have advertised properly: 0.6.3 is
_NOT_ crashy; it's possibly 1000 times less so than the previous version, 
which had a real problem with that.

So, for PureData users: this is the first version of GridFlow that
actually works quite well with PureData. The main differences with the 
jMax side are now only:

 * only 2 examples for PD; 17 examples for jMax
 * 8 abstractions are still jMax-only
 * the list syntax is uglier in PD
