Oh yeah, it's of great concern. You'd have to download a diff that 
modifies Miller's pd so that it becomes as sane or insane as you want it 
to be, and then use /usr/bin/patch to modify Miller's source, unless 
someone provides a prepatched version of Miller's source that is not 

I strongly suspect that dynamic patching features won't change or be 
removed in Miller's pd anyway.
