I'll add it to the TODO list.  Not sure when it will be coded though.
It does seem like it would be a really useful thing to support.

I did some research on OSC before and found it completely lacking in
some areas.  It seems like it describes a decent way for communicating
values, but makes no attempt to describe what is actually being
controlled or what the OSC tree of methods actually looks like.  Unless
someone has added this capability recently, I found it pretty amazing
that such a standard would be pushed.  Basically, one must know exactly
what they are talking to before its possible to control it.  Strange
indeed.  I do remember reading about some efforts to create a discovery
protocol on top of OSC.  That would likely fill in some of the gaps.
        Best regards,
