though the flash app (at hisschemoeller.com)
produces soemthing like x..x..x.x.x.
the number and length of rests is the same in this case,
but the distribution is different. if you, instead of
rounding, just cut the fractional part, you get the same
result as the flash app, only mirrored, but this
seems not to work for other numbers.

i have attached my own quick and dirty
itterative attempt, but i think it should also
be possible to implement with operations on lists,
like in the ruinwesen example. but i am not that familliar
with this in pd...

bis denn!
