[PD] Max/Msp Patches

forget about the File/Open -> *.pat route.  Start pd with the
"-lib cyclone" option, create a [cyclone] object, click on it, and
load _either_ a max-binary, or max-text patch, no matter how it is

Then, look at the console, which warns you about missing objects,
and the like.  Connections are preserved, though -- you are set
to start cleaning up the mess.

Cyclist is more of a debug tool, actually (but nice to have
around).  It takes a single argument naming a max-binary file,
and dumps max-text to standard output.  In case you still insisted
on trying the File/Open -> *.pat option, the command would be
"cyclist binfname > txtfname" (modulo path specs).
