We haven't actually tried, but it involves sending to the pd object a 
"open" message from a small patch controlled by [netreceive]. Then, from 
outside pd, try to netsend the filename to the default port, and if 
connection is refused, then start that small patch. This patch can be 
hidden by sending "vis 0" to its own receive-symbol, via [namecanvas] or 
the other way.

Makes sense?

Le truc, c'est qu'il faut trouver plus de choses à faire à Montréal en 
même temps, pour amortir les coûts... :)
