[PD] ipoke~ ?

Been in touch with P.A. (he's my supervisor at Huddersfield) and he would
be delighted to have a Pd version of iPoke~.  If we get a posse together,
or if someone is happy to take it on, he's more than happy to share the
source code with us/you/them/it.  There's also a new version (v.3) which
hasn't been released yet and we can take it from that.

We/you should decide who's going to take this on and then we/you can get in
touch with P.A.

Hope this helps,
