hmm, from my elitist point of view, [tabread4~] tells me something about 
how this object works (its reading a table using 4 point interpolation) 
rather than [tabread_tweak~] which tells me exactly nothing apart from 
being a modified version of [tabread~] which might do what i want or not.

certainly the exact meaning of the elements "tab" "read" "4" and "~" is 
something you have to get used to or learn by heart. but at least they 
make sense, once you know them.

this might be the reason why i prefer [lop~] over [cool_filter~] and Pd 
over reactor.
