Thankyou Frank, the list method and qlist, textfile and xeq are
all possible things for Composition 2, which I am working on
right now. Your list sequencer is extremely helpful and 
this makes a great demonstration.

It would be nice if the PS output of Pd was fixed to look nice
on all devices, but I suppose this is not a priority. 

All best,
