Max, a friend was giving me the exact same ideas, I hope he joins the list
and discussion. I think this is a great idea and certainly does the trick
for being an extended of some sorts.

Nonetheless, I for one like to use extended for some other silly purposes
as well, just cause it looks a tiny bit nicer, for instance - I got used to

In the latest release, Pd-Extended had many new design and GUI features,
that's something people might miss. I'm still in 0.42-5 as I think the new
version seems unstable and buggy.
