I think it is amazing how much you and pdmtl are able to get out of pd,
but (and sorry I don't know how to put this diplomaticly) I think these
interfaces are at least 2 generations away from what a good interface
could look like. hey, I love pd, and I will do my best to work on all
that stuff that I am permanently complaining about.
but think! - and don't get me wrong, because I know that your work is
not recognized and valued enough - given the hours that you put into
netpd and given the accessability of Pd in general I would assume this
application to be about 1000 times more successful. And the reason why
it is not, is, I think the lack of a better interface. I am talking

not having the success they should have.
