The pdscript file was actually intended for someone who asked how to use
the pd audio engine from within a scripting language.
As Damien (is it Damien or Henry ?) pointed out it is not lisp specific,
any language could be used to setup a patch and control it from the
language afterwards.  Instead of using sockets you can use stdout and
pipe it to pdsend.
