that would be interesting aswell :)
but I mean when you click and drag on an outlet to connect a new cord to 
another object,
i think before it actually becomes a *real* cord, it show a black line 
so you can see where you are dragging the line,
on a black background this is invisible.

either way it's a minor detail, it is still workable as the inlets and 
outlets light up

great! I was looking into that and i've managed to get it working now
i can put a big black toggle from the menu with pdsend 
"$::focused_window obj 20 20 toggle 50 0 empty empty test 50 10 0 20 22 
23 24 1 1"
