I'm wondering about this myself, but I found a lot of information from a
link sent in another thread, by Damien:

Towards the bottom of the page is documentation on PD-MSG. The docs by
Krzysztof Czaja are very interesting.

What I didn't pick up on yet is where exactly to find that port/pipe to
the pd core...
