Which is, what I would like to mention, too. The template stuff is
quite cool, unfourtunatly it is really hard to understand deeply and
doesn't cope well with Graph-on-parent patches in my (small)

But: It is independent of the toolkit, Pd uses. It's a whole new
syntax, that seems quite flexible. 

If it only would find more users, so the rough edges can be found and
smoothed out...

I don't think, something so tied to a toolkit as toxy is the way to go
in the long run.
