Well, I did check the versions and this is what I got... the ones I
couldn't find the version I marked as "not versioned"; and I think they
could just be "0.0.1" or something. The one thing I dont get is tof, I
couldn't find the version, but there's a new one in deken as 0.2.1, maybe
call it 0.2 then? But I wonder how that version name came up... here's
tof's git https://github.com/electrickery/pd-tof
from pd 0.43 (do we really need this?)
from pd 0.43 (do we really need this?)
