i didn't check the sources, but from the description in miller's icmc 
paper, pd~ introduces a pipelined approach, i.e. adding one block of 
latency when audio data is passed from one thread to another.
from my understanding, the pd~ approach is static, so a patch would need 
to be written explicitly for the number of threads ... 

pd~ has different limitations than max5's poly~, but is still far away 
from a general solution ...
