For simple parameter recordings textfile and qlist are all you
need, especially when you have data that isn't structured, like lists
of variable length.

But data structures are immensely useful and flexible even without
visualisations as a general storage mechanism for structured data.
When you're not drawing them, they even are very fast. (Lack of DS is
what's keeping me from trying out DesireData ATM.) 

Originally I intended to write a paper about unusual uses of DS (my
working title was: "databot - people doing strange things with
[struct]") for pd~conv, but I didn't find enough time for it before
the deadline, so now I'll have present something less fun in Montreal. 

But maybe I will just talk about data structures anyway as a little
surprise. ;)
