[PD] midi to osc?

As suggests Derek, it would be nice to have some parts of the help
reorganized. For exemple, the sound could be like this :
I) sound
i) oscillators
a) purepd
b) externals
ii) filters
a) purepd
b) externals

It is just an exemple, there is certainly better.
And it will be useful for the beginner and the pro.
For the network, this will be the same with [netsend] [netreceive]
[udpsend] [udpreceive] [packOSC] [routeOSC] [oggcast~] [oggamp~] etc.
Have you remarks ?
