So objects would output their current settings in the patch rather than in the 
console?  That is a great idea.  And [#camera] is a prime candidate for using 
GOP. Maybe even with a [#peephole] we could turn on or off?

To go back to adding more ready to select size choices to [#camera]  I think 
it could be limited to 8 radio buttons? There is no pop-down graphical object 
for menus in patches.  Unless Yves' playlist can be repurposed?

Apparently, it is the Common Intermediate Format it provides an easy way to 
switch between ntsc and pal.
