Re: Kyma/max

And to confuse the issue even more, I found several examples of folks using
Max _and_ Kyma, though typically they ran them on separate machines (e.g. 
Powerbook to act as the Kyma interface, the other to run Max).

Though, I didn't find any examples of folks using Kyma and Max _with MSP 
at the same time_.
