which was not meant to be defeatist.
i have no objection (so far :-)) basically on _what_ is communicated 
between Pd nd Pd-gui. e.g. i don't have any real problems with the 
server handling mouse-movements and keystrokes (this made peerdata work, 
after all).

what i would love is, if a simple move (using cursor-keys) of a slected 
objects would not result in:

but rather

 > <objID> move 0 1;

(with winID being something like x9f74bf0, and objID being e.g. 9f79510)

nothing more is needed.

i just don't want to see _any_ tcl/tk code in _any_ C-file.
