I will reply in public because I don't see any reason why you replied in 
private nor any reason why I couldn't reply back to the list.

I haven't "fixed" the parentheses yet. This will really involve making a 
second kind of GridFlow class, which will not go through the parens-filter 
at all. (I don't see what else I could do).

no, because the point is to prevent Pd's [print] from running when I type 
[print], because it would print disquieting error messages looking like a 
bug. I think that it's better than pretending to use DS pointers like GEM 
does and GF used to do, for lack of an extensible typesystem.
