Usualy we should receive MIDI CLOCK(0xF8) at [midirealtimin] 
but when we need 0xF8, we will need critical timing.
so I thought it is more better separate 0xF8 and other [MIDI realtime message] 
at source code level than at pd patch level.
midi Sequence START and STOP does not need critical timing.
and few years ago PC spec was still poor.

I made them and I offer it to Mr.Miller at that time.
But keep to compatibility with MAX , It did not implement.
I think we need to consult it with Mr.Miller
