One more thing about all this -- I really wish that music-synth  
languages would evolve in a fashion that they could be built as  
loadable or linkable libs instead of constantly thinking they need to  
stand alone in the world.  We've worked toward this in the design of  
RTcmix (to the point where you can basically instantiate an RTcmix  
object and various methods then run the features of the language), but  
there are still some global var issues (chuck is similar in this  
respect).  Wouldn't it be snazzy to be able to add chuck to any  
application/environment you want to compile by writing a few 'wrapper'  
functions to run the VM, parse scripts, etc.?  And then just add a  
chuck.dylib or chuck.so to the linking?  Building chuck into ruby or  
pd or lisp or lua or whatever would be so easy!

And for the record, I really dislike the OSC model for gluing apps
