yeah, that's what confused me most at first. OSC is a transmission 
protocol with no real standards for what exactly it will transmit. it 
can be anything. in my patches, i've been following the way reaktor uses 
OSC [http://barely.a.live.fm/pd/OSC/r3osc-2.html].. basically emulating 
MIDI commands. perhaps that's a step backwards, but it's been useful to 

NI's Traktor now sends OSC commands for sync. but i had trouble figuring 
out exactly what they are. anyone heard anything about this?

on the subject, does Pd handle timestamped messages? i'm working on a 
seperate OSC sequencer idea, and i'm wondering if latency can be 
addressed this way (udp packets could arrive at any time, so the 
timestamp would be helpful to keep them rhythmic..)
