Yes, I'd much prefer that we just make it simple (enough)  to do this sort
of thing without middleware, but with some builtin mapping syntax and code.
It could potentially be done via a loaded .so that uses a very simple API,
something along the lines of

                     std::string translate_osc_message (std::string const&);

but really it seeems to me to be doable via looking at some definition in a
file (vaguely xslt-ish, i suppose)
