So one of the features of the new GUI is that it will load little GUI  
plugins in the form of Tcl scripts.  The additions to the canvas  
Properties/Open/Help popup menu are both scripts like this.  You can  
see them in the 'pd/startup' folder.

One thing that we haven't been able to do is come up with a good name  
for them.  Right now, they are called 'startup' scripts.  Any one want  
to suggest anything?

And of course, try writing your own scripts for the GUI.  Federico  
wrote the big class browser script and thru the process of working  
with him, we were able to streamline the process quite a bit.  So if  
people try it now, then its still easy to change the code to make  
things easier/better.



Programs should be written for people to read, and only incidentally  
for machines to execute.
