First, apologies for the non-working lua.pd_darwin part of the Makefile 
- if someone has working commands, I'd appreciate them so I can add 
them.  I don't have a Mac to test.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think pdlua requires Lua 5.1.  At least I had 
weird problems with Lua 5.0...

One caveat about putting it somewhere in the Pd.app - the file pd.lua 
needs to be in Pd's path so it can be found by the lua.pd_whatever 
external.  I usually just have:


Maybe I could take a leaf out of Mathieu's book and use the code from 
GridFlow that finds itself and adds necessary things to Pd's path(s).
