[PD] can one osc~ read several partials?

AFAIK if you're doing an additive synthesis thing you need as many osc~'s as
partials.  Which brings me to the following question for Miller:

Would it be difficult/possible to implement something similar to the Spawn
function found in SuperCollider?  Not that I want PD to head in SC direction
but it certainly is a useful function.

Otherwise you can read tables filled with, say, waveforms into tabosc~ (am I
right?) and this way you can have one osc read a complex waveform.  But I
have a feeling that this is not what you want to do.....
