Yo Pdmtl
I am trying to bang together a style guide for Pd, sort of like Python
has in "PEP8" http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/

I'd love to hear all of your input since you are one of the finest Pd
forces around, and since you may have the largest collaborative effort
of patches yet done with Pd.

There are three ways you could contribute...
I'm collecting people's "personal style documents" (no, you don't have
to take pictures of yourself) here:
where you'd just sort of rattle off things you notice you do regularly
when patching, for the purposes of documenting the many styles out

Probably most likely, you could comment on this:
which is culled from the conversation that ensued when I brought this
up on the main Pd-list.

Or, you could all just go nuts and start a conversation independently
which I'll happily observe/participate in, that I'll then fold into
the guide.

Finally, I plan to have a series of "ratifications" on various topics
when necessary (e.g. naming conventions etc.), so, if you're all for
it, I'd love to include you guys in those (I'll just post to the list
as needed).
