[PD] [key], [keyup] and operating system key reapat

I might be mistaking what you're saying but, on OSX if key repeats are off in the system preferences (at least when pd starts) then they will not repeat from the [key] & [keyname] objects

Dear Dan and everyone contributing to this issue,

I kinda felt this is a sensitive topic but was not aware of the amount
of frustrating work that has already gone into it. Every bit of it is
much appreciated, thank you and everyone a lot!

So if I would want to write a patch that uses the [key] and [keyup] objects to
work consistently on all three platforms, I would have to tell the user to
turn key repeat off in her operating system AND provide a means to
filter out repeating key ons (Win and OS X), correct?

In this case I happily deal with the current status.

thanks again,

From my point of view, we should enjoy what works as it is and remember that for some people, the key handling should respect the general system as opposed to being Pd-specific. Of course, some may have a different opinion, in which case I ask them to contribute working solutions for test/discussion.
