[PD] directory paths

         I have a really stupidly complicated system setup using 4NT where 
it will dump all files and locations with a specified extension, in 
whatever dirs you want, in a txt file. I then use [textfile] to cycle 
through the txt file to select the samples I want.

         This, of course, can't really be done live in an [openpanel] kind 
of concept, I do this all before I run Pd.

         I'll share it with you if you *really* want the headache of using it.
