at some point i was interested walking the other direction of
the food chain: dynamically create PD guis via OSC from SC.
d.lj provided me with some impressing PD patches but alas,
it's a hack.

initially i wanted to implement an SC interface in vim; the
reason emacs was chosen is the fact that the old lisp monster
