How about importing a stable version of GridFlow into the pure-data  
CVS?  Then we can include GridFlow as part of the Pd.app build system.   
Its quite simple, once its in CVS, you make a gridflow target that does  
everything needed to compile gridflow.  Then copy the files to the  
Pd.app, then it'll be part of all future Pd.app builds.

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick.
