[PD] Revising Help Files

Hi List,
I'm interested in revising the help files for the basic objects in 
pd-ext.  Basically having a standard table so that one can find
quickly find basic info on an object.

I made an abstraction called htab that automatically formats this
information in a gop abstraction.  Currently I'm entering the info
as arguments to htab, which works quite well when using

However, there are currently lots of different help patch formats in
the reference folder for the common pd objects.  I'd like to have 
one standard format to make it quicker and easier to get help.

Attached are examples of what I'd like to implement.  Aside from 
the pddp/dsp abstraction, it has the benefit of being vanilla- 
compatible and fitting on an 800x600 screen (at least on windows).

Please have a look at the attached and let me know if this seems 
like a good format or not.  The patches should work with the 
current pd-x.
