That's a very good point--with the new tabwrite~ object, you're
already going to have to change its [bang( behavior anyway.  So why
not add it to your desired feature set also?

There ought to be some way to start a recording with sub-block
accuracy from clock-delayed messages, which is brilliant.

But I also think it exposes a sort of problem, like what things would
go wrong when only part of the table has been written in a single
block.  Good patching solves this case-by-case, but there's a
potential for things to go wrong somewhere.

Also, does that mean you'd be wanting at some point to add vtabplay~?
or other vtabxxxxx~ rewrites?

So, at the risk of sounding lazy, do you really want to have that sort
of growing project for an object you've already written?  or just name
it tabwriteto~?
