[CM] cm and supercollider

Perhaps there is a way to create the synthdefs themselves in CM? It  
seems to me that if there were a way to interface the classdefs in SC  
(All ugen definitions at least), then write the synthdefs out  
directly from CM, then the cm class wrappers could also be auto  
generated (as Johannes Quint mentioned). If CM is going to work well  
with SC, it would be great to eliminate the need for starting SC in  
the first place to create the SynthDefs. If this is of interest for  
the CM package, I can look more at the SC source to see what is  
needed to load a SynthDef to the server as a binary OSC file.

Just an idea, and one that I imagine wouldn't be a quick build... but  
this would bring CM and its SuperCollider functions much closer  
together, and would allow CM to become more of an SC client then just  
a score writer / OSC controller.
