No idea. Having never used OM myself, I don't even know if what I said
is true, it's just what I was told.

Ircam is an academic institution trying to solve problems, not sell
products. The problem here, presumably, is how to compose electronic
music using a language designed specifically for that task instead of
trying to adapt conventional notation to suit electronic musician's
needs, like we do at present. The former is considered elegant and
liberating while the latter is clunky and constraining. In theory I
agree but in practice I still compose music with a staff or piano-roll
matrix, not data structs and pointers.
