[PD] Nord Modular instrument converter

I started working on a Nord Modular to PD converter.

NM users have patched thousands of free instruments
(http://nordsynth.zevv.nl). It would be nice to be able to
use the user-made instruments elsewhere.

I choosed PD but we should make the converter general enough
so that converters to other modular systems can be written.
I can work on them as well.
Check for "http://nmedit.sourceforge.net" for a NM instrument
file parser. The NM file format is close to PD's own. Anyone
could rewrite the parser standalone in C, Python, etc?

 [[ I see no problem in writing the converter. Buying a Nord
    Modular does not mean that its users should restrict
    their intellectual property to Nord Modular. ]]
