...tkpath in pd-l2ork, just like cwiid library is a fork that has more bug
fixes and features than any other variant since the core of either packages
is not maintained uniformly or at all, so tkpath is very much maintained
inside pd-l2ork.

There's also on my short-term a todo list to overhaul vanilla gui objects
so that they queue their actions rather than requesting the same action
multiple times per refresh and bogging down the networked nature of the gui.
