[CM] CM/Scheme without Grace?

Thanks Rick, I just took a proper read through the Common Music docs and
will definitely be coming back to this as many of the things I want to do
are there. So in the long run, it will probably make sense to make the S7
algo tools that I want in Max be as CM based or compatible as possible.
(Which was one of the reasons I chose S7, I just hadn't go to this part
yet...).   I was planning on adding scheduled scheme functions hooked into
the Max global time system for the second release, so I'll take a proper
dig into the CM scheduler and see if can make it compatible, or nearly so.
It would be great if I could get it so that Common Music scheme code could
mostly just run on scheme-for-max. :-)

One more questions, did you implement SAL in S7? or is there a SAL
interpreter in C++?

thanks for all your work!
