True there's many externals for info purposes, but your patch makes it
work via a modification of pd core code. I tried your patch file and
demo. What a cool demo it is! This makes my day. (And I've not even
seen half of it, because pd crashes at the 'edit demo-abstraction',
that's maybe because I patched pd version test5.) Good thing you
bumped this topic.
