Still, you need to get the text message to the Python external.
Besides that, I find it a bit to have to resort to Python only to get a text 
message out.
I use the [system] object to start shell scripts which are triggered by pd 
events, and here too, I have to use [makefilename] to build a commandline. It 
works, but it's ugly.
