I feel the same way.

I'm a noob on this, and I think I don't really get what parts of the SC
I know are sclang and what scsynth. Using Python and OSC I guess you
can easilly play SynthDefs (because these are loaded on the server and
anyhow sclang communicates with OSC to the server), but do you loose all
the other nice stuff like Ugens, Tasks, Routines, Patterns? 

I'd be so happy to be able to use supercollider's functionality in
