well, FYI in Jitter you do [jit.someobject @color r g b a] (for  
example), or can use a message named color.

Ive never seen or used [jit.someobject @red r @green g @blue b @alpha a]

and jitter also has just about every colorspace conversion possible,  
that I have ever seen or dealt with professionally, and many I have  
not heard of or ever had to use:


Not meant as flame bait (sorry, I still feel like an ass for yesterday  
Mathieu!), but more for compare/contrast.

I quite like the attribute system jitter has, and think it could be  
imported with some sort of syntax highlighting for objects where  
attribute names are one color and their set values another.

It would (may?) help visually grokking the text within the patcher
