[L2Ork-dev] new alpha release of pd-l2ork

I'm enjoying the new release Ico, thanks for your work as always.

I'd like to make a case for including the most recent version of iemguts in the next L2Ork release. Aside from some bug fixes and new features, the main difference is that iemguts now includes initbang and loadang, and this is the only way of accessing them in Vanilla (0.47 and above). This means that the objects [initbang] and [closebang] are currently incompatible between Vanilla and L2Ork. In Vanilla, you have to create [iemguts/initbang], but this won't be found in L2Ork. Using "declare" isn't an option, as [initbang] is only useful in abstractions, and declare doesn't work here.

There is a workaround of creating the object [iemguts/try initbang, iemguts/initbang], which seems to be working for me. However, I don't think that most users will think of this.

Currently, the new version of iemguts is not available on deken and has to be compiled: https://git.iem.at/pd/iemguts

Would you be willing / able to include it in L2Ork?

OK, I just committed a series of patches that should hopefully address all of these problems and will be releasing a beta sometime tomorrow...

Scalar is a non-issue. It is currently an object that has no purpose (yet) according to Miller's comments in the code. I have opted not to implement it yet and in these patches it is merely listed as a related object.

This is something I will have to investigate further. Any help/leads is most appreciated. 
With text-object-help.pd I get:

This one is a bit of a pickle that will take some effort to reconcile. Miller's drawnumber/drawsymbol and Pd-L2Ork's are starting to diverge significantly. I am thinking I may just implement drawtext as a separate object altogether.  scalar

See comment above.
Making progress. Slowly. Progress nonetheless :-)
