[hid] isn't on Windows yet, but works on Mac OS X and GNU/Linux.   
Should be quite straightforward.  And I far as I know, its stable.   
Let me know if you find crashes.

As for all the dependencies and versions, I think Pd-extended will  
help you a lot.  The builds are built from the exact same sources on  
all three platforms.  The latest auto-builds are now dated, so if you  
find a nightly build that works, you can specify the date.

The idea here is instead of everyone spending time debugging custom  
setups and creating custom installers, if we all pool our efforts  
into one package, we'll all be better off.



If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.
