Ahh, okay, now I understand what that link was meant to demonstrate, thanks
for the explanation! :)
However, keep in mind, that to start with, all patches in my matrix will be
patches that have been created by me, not just arbitrary patches from
anywhere. Given that I will have written all the code it is more likely my
own patches will play nicer with each other than random patches from other
people. However, that said, I am sure I will run into some issues along the
way... but part of the fun of coding is solving problems! ;)
Once I have all my patches upgraded to the latest Lua I will work on
creating a matrix for them all and will see just how many combinations of
patches there are to test against each other... the answer will probably
scare me! ;)
