not to hijack the issue, what I have to say about the updates I made is
that what needs for carefulness and discussion is that last two commits,
where I'm pressuring we change the way we make an example on how to use
slop~ to report peak level, and also changes to out1~ abstraction.

One other thing is that I made some changes in the other help files and I
put "updated for 0.51-0" but not because the object itself changed. Let me
explain, I'm using examples where I can now use a backslash in a message
box to escape a space symbol. This wasn't working in Pd 0.50-2, it's a bug
that just got fixed, before Pd wouldn't save the backslash in the message
box. Anyway, I thought this did count for an update for 0.51-0 because this
couldn't be done before. But I'm not sure this is good as it might lead
people to believe the object itself changed. I don't really know what's the
policy for this "updated for" warnings, do they reflect that only the
object changed or also if the documentation went though a major overhaul?
