a minority for sure, but this is not a bad thing. actually, i was at mcgill last year; i showed stuff in sal (text), every other presentation was open music or pwgl. but some in the audience were neither, when i 'apologized' for showing the algorithms in text several opined that it was much easier to comprehend than the gui patches!

bill has tinyclos running in s7; its on my todo list this summer to see if i can't just boot the cm2 api in cm3/s7 using that.  it should be possible since the cm2 CLOS code was actually auto-generated from cm2 scheme sources  that used the "native" object systems  in gauche, stklos, chicken scheme, all of which came from tinyclos.
