hmm. agreed of course about the complicated alternatives. i wasn't
aware that a separate plugin GUI becomes nigh mandatory, which i must
admit i find not to my greatest liking.

however, the entire configure() liturgy makes sense once the GUI
implication is accepted.

i'm not too intimate with liblo/OSC, so sorry for asking an RTFM
question: does OSC provide some sort of alternative, textual
representation of configuration options?
