hi thomas,

I read:

actually I find this an execellent idea, and it would open all sorts of
other possibilities (think pyGSL, csound style GEN routines etc...)

well, if VASP should significantly change it wouldn't break much of my
existing patches, those could still be simply converted to VASp_OLD 
with a tiny perl/sed/tr/py script

yes (though rather simple synthesis mostly)

nope / not yet, (I find supercollider more expressive for such things)

yes but not interesting enough to bother

since I always thought it was nrt I virtuously used it that way
but it would of course be nice to have this feature.
