Hi Krzysztof,
for me, the poly~ object in Max is one of its main advantages over pd (apart
from the better user interface) - so i would really be enthusiastic about a
comparable mechanism here.
I don't know too much about the internals of pd, but as i heard, in Max the
advantage of the in~/out~- over to the send~/receive~-approach is, that it
doesn't introduce the 1 signal vector delay then. I guess this delay also
occurs in pd, so, in this sense, i would rather back the in~/out~-approach.
