The big blocker for me on merging new code from vanilla is what to do with the portaudio stuff.  Pd-extended has a bunch of changes, I believe mostly from you, IOhannes.  If memory serves me, there were also issues with vanilla's support of OSX audio output.  The audio I/O stuff I've never really followed so well.
