Learn, learn, learn.... ;) 

Anecdote: When I discovered Pd about 3 or 4 years ago, I felt at home
soon, but I also realized, that it would take *years* to get familiar
with it to the degree I would like to be familiar with it. I gave
myself a span of 4 years in which I would not even try to do any real
music with Pd but instead just invest time to learn it. I thought, 4
years would be a good span, because that's about as long as studying
something at university takes here.

This is a cool project, and actually not that far away from what
RRADical should achieve, but in RRADical, I'd like to patch the
bricks, from which something like Improsculpt can be built with ease.
At least this is the phiosophy behind it, but give me another half
year (or at least some months) to make this actually happen.
