This was the original idea behind the flext layer. Write once, use on both

Yet, the most obvious advantage of MaxMSP are the GUI objects where PD is
far behind.
I have thought over it but i did not come to a really portable solution.
I will try to implement an embedded wxPython interface in the next time,
which seems to be the best suited for the available platforms, but it will
NOT support pd's GUI client/server approach. I don't mind, though.
