I know and it has been on my todo list for a long time. The point is 
that it hasn't made it to the top of this list since i don't need it.
On the other hand it doesn't seem so important in general that any other 
person has cared to do it although i consider it a trivial task and i 
offered my support for any questions that might arise.

I'm not sure if the flext code is easy to read because it handles Max 
and PD in the same file, but it is in flout.cpp (method 
flext_base::InitInlets ) and flproxy.cpp.
There must be other externals using proxy inlets, probably zexy or other 
iem-based stuff.
