Very cool and really good for beginners as well. If your students
become a little bit advanced and want to sequence with the [list]
objects: Attached is a little variation of your sequencer. Sequencing
lists instead of your [select ...] chains has the advantage that you
can do funky modifications to your patterns on the fly. I illustrated
that by playing the pattern in reverse as well in the example.

You also did change the font position in the ps-printed patches,
right? Maybe this can go into Pd's sources directly, so that Pd would
automatically produce correctly positions fonts in boxes.
