you often say that iemguts is very experimental and can be broken in the  
next day (due to developments in pd gui or something?). there are some  
very interesting things there, like the externals dealing with parent  
patches. Using these with abstractions would make it much easier to depend  
on $0-variables and still use independently programmed abstractions (I  
myself use as many $0 as I can, but sometimes can't use abstractions as  
well, because they have a different $0).

Are these externals going to stay there, should we be using them? or is it  
just a temporary thing, until you get better things to do?
