Thanks IOhannes, I've used iemguts, it's so interesting! But being an
external, can I get information about things like: how many objects are on
my current patch? how inlets/outlets they have? I think you've implemented
iemguts to that porpouse: there isn't a way to do that using just the m_pd.h
interfaces. Am I right?

I'm trying to get information about the objects on a patch to make it easy
to reflect the state of PD to other languages like Python [1]. Yes, I've
seen your presentation about reflection on PD and it's awesome!

Is there a roadmap to make the facilities of iemguts a default feature at PD
soon? I would like to contribute on it.

Thanks a lot!
