thanks for the hint, that was very inspiring, like putting a stethoscope 
onto the heart of PD ! ;-)

what this basically does, is protocolling everything that is done within 
the PD window (of course also the dsp stuff), but also keystrokes that 
are sent in dialogues/properties windows.

also audio/midi settings are displayed. all of this is handy if somewhat 
cryptic stuff.

as far as i can tell, everything that can be received from PD via [r pd] 
can also be sent to PD with a [s pd], at least changes sent to the audio 
dialog worked that way.

i think this definitely deserves a mentioning or better a fully 
description somewhere in the tutorials
