[PD] osx pduino: nothing works

List goofballs aside, I think it would be good to clarify all this stuff.

The split between the things available on HCs site and what comes with  
Arduino is quite confusing. I was only using the ones from HC to keep  
the versions matching.

The Arduino-provided Firmata stuff does not contain the Pd objects  
themselves, and if the Pd objects must match certain Firmata then it  
would be good to make a note of that somewhere... maybe on the site  
where the Pd stuff is downloaded?

And besides that, if some Firmata says it supports ATMEGA8 then I  
believe what it says. I spent half of yesterday smashing my face  
against the keyboards of 12 students, trying to teach them something  
that was broken, and the reason it was broken was not documented. So  
yes I get a bit cranky!

Peace out dudes,
