register new post()-backends (which could be the message-output of an 
the latter requires a patched Pd-version (the patch exists in the 
patchtracker, afaik) but miller never fully accepted it into the main 
source-tree (though part of it: the embedded pd-console is part of it; 
and the ability to choose between stderr and pd-console)
