[PD] xp4pd - extreme programming over the network

It would be great to have the Teleo objects for Pd.  I have been  
writing Pd patches for http://www.amorphicrobotworks.org and we are  
always on the hunt for better IO solutions.  It would also be great if  
you released your objects for Pd as open source.  That you'll find that  
people like me will fix the bugs for you.  When we are working on a  
project, we basically never have time to wait for someone to release a  
new version of software.  We generally fix it ourselves, if possible,  
or use something different.  ARW has been a big user of Max/MSP but we  
are moving to Pd for a number of reasons, one being problems that copy  
protection causes.  The license just expired for a core bit of a  
permanent installation so it wasn't working for a little while until we  
could wrangle a new serial number.

I'll keep the list up to date on any xp4pd developments, of course.   
I'd love to hear people's comments, experience, etc. with it.
