I thought the same. One advantage of a common gui is that some users might
stop complaining about PD's gui and choose PD or pyMax for their intrinsic
qualities, not their look. Of course, the vast majority will still
evaluate the quality of PD with criterias like the number of visible and
colorful icons, the font antialisiang, the dropshadow's transparency, the
very reassuring segmented patch cords, and the almighty splash screen...

What is required to try the CVS version of pymax?
"" wants a python module named "ircam.fts.client".
