AW: [PD] still slow array display?

i have another wish...
i'd find it more convenient if the array display would draw the peak value
of the samples contained in one pixel. I don't know what the current policy
is, but when the samples in a buffer consist merely of short clicks it can
happen that you don't see any signal at all.
