hi Luke,
this looks great! maybe you can add 1 or 2 pixels of padding to msg and 
obj, although, I don't know if that would destroy the message box?
the message section can be deleted, most of that will be in 
inlets/outlets, so it is a little bit redundant. but you can also leave it.
do you know that it is possible to use images now, so if you want to 
have a small example patch as an image it would be possible to embed.
the next thing I want to do, is to make all fields that are empty 
disappear in the infobox.
there are some details, like I would not capitalize objectnames like 
Dac~ or Throw~, even if they start a sentence.
