 <section name="Objects for making grids and breaking them down">
-	<class name="#import">
-		<p>This object allows you to produce grids from non-grid data, such as
-		integers and lists of integers. This object also reframes/resyncs
-		grids so that multiple grids may be joined together, or
-		single grids may be split. That kind of operation is already done implicitly in many
-		cases (e.g. sending an integer or list to a grid-receiving inlet),
-		but using this object you have greater flexibility on the conversion.</p>
-		<attr name="shape" type="GridShape|symbol(per_message)" default="per_message">
-			a list specifying a grid shape that the numbers
-			will fit into; or "per_message" indicating each incoming message
-			will be turned into a vector.
-		</attr>
-		<attr name="cast" type="NumberType" default="int32"/>
-		<method name="init">
-			<arg name="shape" isattr="yes"/>
-			<arg name="cast" isattr="yes"/>
-		</method>
-		<inlet id="0">
-			<method name="int">
-				begins a new grid if there is no current grid.
-				puts that integer in the current grid.
-				ends the grid if it is full.
-				the constructed grid is not stored: it is streamed.
-				the stream is buffered, so the output is in packets
-				of about a thousand numbers.
-			</method>
-			<method name="list">
-				just like a sequence of ints sent one after another,
-				except in a single message.
-			</method>
-			<method name="symbol">
-				considered as a list of ascii characters.
-			</method>
-			<method name="reset">
-				aborts the current grid if there is one.
-			</method>
-			<method name="grid">
-				<arg name="grid" type="grid(dims...)"/>
-				this is the equivalent of filtering this grid through
-				an <k>[#export]</k> object and sending the resulting integers
-				to this <k>[#import]</k> object, except that it's over
-				10 times faster.
-			</method>

-		<inlet id="1" attr="shape">
-			<method name="per_message">
-				old synonym for "shape per_message"
-			</method>

-		<outlet id="0">
-			<method name="grid"><arg name="grid" type="grid"/>
-				the grid produced from incoming integers and/or grids.
