I think i have a fix for the csoundport on windows (switching from  
csoundScoreEvent to csoundInputMessage) and the same new code will  
also allow passing a string pfield value in addition tot numbers.  
Since this is a bit of a rewrite Ive taken the opportunity to make the  
csound port more flexible -- you can  open it for rt audio and render  
score data to sound files at the same time, or play score data out the  
rt port. I will try to ship the csound dll with grace so there is no  
confusion, as i understand it if you put a dll in a the directory with  
the .exe then windows will find it (we will see...)

ill should have the new binaries available tomrrow i think, or no  
later than saturday.
