Yeah, a few months ago we tried to parse the RjLib so that we could create a
documentation page on the site. We ended up making .cfg files for each
object as we struggled to parse the netlist with python. It kinda got put on
ice as development has gone a bit crazy. These files are still available if
you checkout the 'help_gen' branch from the RjLib git repo.

Otherwise this page - http://blog.rjdj.me/pages/pd-utilities - has most of
the information needed to get started with making scenes, including some
templates. If there is anything you think needs improving I'd love to know

 This is really cool Peter. Thanks for you all your work! I don't know about
