hi hans

yeah, a software project needs definitely a focus. for myself, i always
believed, that pd's focus is audio and that is also the reason, why i
came to pd. and when having a look at src/notes.txt i still think, pd's
focus is on audio. so, i am not quite sure, if pd really lacks a focus.
which, on the other hand, doesn't mean, that pd can be used in
outside-of-audio contexts, but then one needs to use externals (or a dev
needs to write an external first). so, externals are focussed on
'specialized' - non-audio - applications. this is my subjective view of
was it that, what you meant by a 'focus'?
