hi *!

first of all, thanks for all your helpful replies to my earlier question 
about messages and abstraction - i'm still trying to understand some of 
the comments, but i'm going with claude's suggestion for now to keep the 
ID knowledge outside of all related objects and not use $0. so far, that 
seems to do the job, and the code is a lot cleaner now. will post asap.

quick question: is it legal to (ab)use creation parameters to inlets and 
outlets for documentation, or does that lead to unwanted side effects?

i'd like to do something like this:

[inlet Set level in dB]
[inlet Set Fader position in mm]

[outlet Current level in dB]
[outlet Current Fader position in mm]
[outlet~ Gain coefficient]

of course i could use comments, but i don't like the way they don't 
line-wrap in a controlled way, plus their association to what they are 
annotating is a bit weak for my taste...
