I cannot find the message i replied to. This shouldn't be a reply to the 
quote. IIRC, you wrote that you don't know that anyone is using the 
streamin~ externals and I replied that they are not used, because they 
don't work very well and are not very useful without multi-channel 
support (IMHO). I tried all the different versions of streamio(13)~ and 
posted several times messages to the list about this in the last 2 
years, but nothing happened since then.

this is not a complaint! i know this is open-source software... :-)

but it'S still a problem with Pd that there are too many externals 
scattered in the net, outdated and not maintained anymore. sometimes 
with same names and slightly different behaviour. i know you are aware 
of this problem (the CVS is a huge improvement). But Pd is still a 
user's nightmare.

Where is the bug tracker?
