I would like to know, how likely it is that this bug is going to be
fixed in the next couple of weeks. Please do *not* understand this as a
request and certainly not as a demand to fix it. Having this piece of
information helps to define a strategy of what audio software can be
used in an upcoming project with with students - a project that also
involves Pd.

Any feedback (such as 'the maintainer of this object is not on this
list') might be helpful.
