If google was good for searching sounds you'd be able to
give it a url for a sound and have it return as many as it can find like it,
as you get with Freesound and sites that try and match spectrograms. Is that 
the idea?

I guess having stringy things helps a lot now. Wonder if anyone ever written a 
webserver in Pd? Or something like pd mod-perl module or pd python module
for Apache, that would be fun, to make pd behave as a web application component
for data views/representation, say you wanted to browse the spectrographs
of a fat directory of data files. I did it clumsily by calling XGraph through
[shell] and passing it a list of floats from a flatfile. A pd only patch that
returns some pretty pictures of data to a web browser would be quite cute.
Or can the summer of code thing just be about any stuff you like and not
limited to web programming?
