Yes, it is implemented. Look at SwingOSC as the solution, it is a java
based server that takes care of doing gui things for you and the latest
versions of SC have a much better integration than older ones. You need
to install Java - the Sun version, I think - for it to work, I can't add
that to Planet CCRMA because the license does not allow me to
redistribute it. The Planet CCRMA package is supercollider-swingosc, I
think (you get everything I have if you install supercollider-world).
