this is a crucial point, since it also concerns external developers:

- external developers can't call pd's simd functions, nor the runtime
dispatching functions
- external developers can't place idle callbacks
if they want to stay compatible with miller's branch

i think these two features should be made available to external
developers as soon as possible ...
on the other hand, the last thing i heard from miller about the simd
stuff was, that he doesn't think, he can maintain this code and i'm not
sure, if he ever wrote a comment on the idle callbacks ...
so i'm not sure, if any of the devel features will ever make it into
miller's pd ...

cheers ... tim
