this should not be on a wishlist, it should be a high priority!  at 
first i thought that Xwindows was to blame but it's the same under 
windows.  i don't know if it's pd or tcl/tk that's causing the 
problem, but it's appalling to see a few spinning number boxes eat 
25-40% on a 1.4ghz cpu!!!   especially when i have pathetic old macs 
doing the same thing in max without breaking a sweat.

can somebody look into this??

also, the array object is particularly bad when it comes to cpu use. 
is there a non graphic version?
