One question I have with the toxy sliders is this: in the
multiscale-test.pd file, there are some really neat sliders, but how
do you create these, and what are the creation arguments?

I know that we can just go in to the patch as a text file and get this
information, but it would be nice if there were some more instructions
on the usage of these really powerful gui tools. What references are
recommended for experimenting with this?
