In the model I use for attributes (in GridFlow), the name of the attribute 
is always the same as the name of the set-method, and for getting, there 
is a single get-method that takes the attribute name in $1, defaulting to 
all. IIRC, everybody does it like that in Pd, and perhaps in MAX too, but 
I don't really remember.

I mean I think that we all agree on this.

(DS [set] is an exception to this model, in some way... but DS don't have 
inlets nor receivers accessible from pd, anyway, so, they wouldn't be able 
to fit the model)
