well, i'm not a big fan of extending the pd syntax!
this would result an incompatibility from one pd interpreter to another
although i like the idea of having an extended dataflow syntax (nested
lists, exact numeric data types) compatibility should be a major
this would be another project and it would be much cleaner to
reimplement a whole dataflow language from scratch, rather than using
the pd codebase for that... it's just not suited for that ...
... maybe a topic for my bachelor thesis, once i started to study
cheers ... tim
