This is because this is something that I only saw on one computer, this 
february, and it disappeared when restarting Pd, and we were not able to 
reproduce it, so I put it on the todo-list and left it there.

Starting with révision 5535 (right now), [range] is also aliased to 
[gf/range]. this fixes your problem. This will be in 9.9.

Do you actually witness the [range] name conflict problem ?...

I only learned the minimum amount of Windows programming to be able to 
have GridFlow usable on Windows, so, any help is appreciated. If you think 
that I should change something in the README then I could change it, if 
you confirm that this is really where GridFlow should go.

Tell me if you find any other names that should be aliased.
