OK. I am already missing the package / module concept however.

Well, there's no such thing as an "audicle" so tacking on the prefix
"mini" makes it less than informative as to what it might actually
be. That said I also hate the name "ChucK", especially with that
spelling, but thought it impolite to mention that as well. ;-)

One has to admit that Supercollider is a very cool name!

Yes, I saw some code for that somewhere. Though it's nice to have a
workaround, it does make what should be trivial into something less
than trivial.
