All that you need to know about this one is the OSC messages it
understands, and there will be an implementation chart, as well as an
'explanation' document of how everything works.

I want to encourage developers to write front ends as much as possible,
so documentation won't be a problem.

(As a sidenote, I personally found the built in supercollider
documentation really helpful..)
