Yeah that was actually a pd patch that I have somewhere.  Right now I'm revising 
my tcl search plugin so that you can get a list of all the libraries with a short 
description of what's in them.  That, along with the ability to do full text search, 
keyword/author/xlet/license/description/alias search should be a lot more useful 
than a big list of 1000+ objects.
