I think this is what has impressed me most about chuck so far (in the
short time I've been looking at it).  In short, most all of the
functionality provided by other apps (sequencing, jack-aware, OSC,
midi, synth capabilities, etc.) are all provided by one single
"language" that is easily scripted.  I felt much like stephan, in that
if I wasn't live coding I wasn't welcome.  this idea was, of course,
wrong - I had "prejudged" the chuck community prior to actually
checking it out for myself.

I'm so excited about this tool that I can barely stand it.  finally, a
toolkit without a gui!  yes!  and it does everything you could want it
to do.  besides, as stated before it is jack/midi/osc aware, so it
*should* play nicely with other apps that are the same.
