is there a "public" version of it? as this is very important for some of my
abstractions and very useful, specially jp.menu and jp.preset, which
simulate a drop-down menu only using Pd mechanics.

theoretically yes, but when being used in abstractions (which is my
particular case) it makes things harder to determine what is the main patch
window where to send the message to. And make it dependent on an external
library that will find out the main window name.
