These OSC appear to make on my installation, but I haven't really put 
them to the test yet.

I am mostly interested in [shell], so maybe Ggee would be a good start. 
I don't know if it would be easier/faster to only do the data-flow 
objects?? In which case, things like [wrap] (Cyclone), [gate] (IEM_lib), 
and [makesymbol], [date], [time] (Zexy) seem like the most obvious and 
useful ones to port.

Next thing: what about ALSA? I know ALSA support for normal PD is kinda 
wacked, but could you possibly get it working better for Familiar? 
Reason I ask is that the ALSA drivers have patches to get the sound to 
come out of the headphone jack for the IPAQ 5550. Otherwise, you're 
stuck with the built-in speaker!!!

thx mucho!
