"tabread4~" isn't such a great name that it should be used for the  
new one.  Why not use a more descriptive name for the new one?  Also,  
changing the code of tabread4~ will change the sound quality of a  
piece.  I think it is very important to keep the same sound quality  
since many people have spent a lot of time building patches around  
tabread4~ and like the way those patches sound.
