I have had this PR open for a while: https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/1261 . It adds threaded behaviour for disk and network I/O, making the Pd audio thread "real-time safer". I went through quite a few revisions courtesy of umlaeute and Spacechild1, but haven't heard from you directly. I am happy to do some more work if there is interest in merging. CI build currently fails because of weird "support" of ssize_t on VS (happy to hear about workarounds).
