Hi, if someone wants to contribute something i feel would be important to
Pd, it would go like this:

Create the most feature-using patch ever. Use every option of every GUI
object (bang,toggle,sliders,gop,etc) in the most visual possible way. Then
we can visually compare what has changed from one version of Pd to
another, and thus spot incompatibilities. Please put most of the stuff in
only one patcher, so i can easily make a "screenshot diff" (heh) for most
of the visual stuff.

Then for the nonvisual stuff (sendsymbols, receivesymbols, etc), use a
[loadbang] system that [print] a bunch of values that can easily be
checked for correctness. Bonus points if it also is easy to spot where the
problem is happening. =)

Anyone willing to be my hero? :-)
