[sc-dev] Rendezvous and commands

Hi Sekhar,

 I'd love to see this integrated into the general release: it would make
OSC much more flexible.

 James' announcement of integer equivalents for SCserver commands
gives me the following idea:

	There could be a standard SC/OSC command for requesting
a list of available OSC commands with their integer equivalents.
The Server object on the client side could keep these pairings in a
dictionary and save bandwidth for lightweight OSC projects without
requiring any changes to user code.  Integer equivalents could
be generated "on the fly" (like nodeID's) so that the same approach could
be applied to application OSC projects.

	Is this something that could be supported with Rendezvous?
