In DesireData, as soon as I'm done reprogramming the GOP feature (which 
has been dragging for a while and is driving me mad) I will work towards 
making DS and pointers work again. I will be working at the atom level on 
three different additions that have something in common: deallocatable 
symbols, listatoms, and simplified pointers. All three involve reference 
counting (I won't involve mark-and-sweep in this). Also, listatoms won't 
be chains of pairs (linked-lists) as they are in LISP; they will be more 
like LISP vectors, or in pd internals vocabulary, t_binbuf (which might 
gain in getting renamed) or argument lists. (now I'd like to know: should 
those lists be mutable or not?)
