[PD] crossfade of complete sample buffer

hi Thomas,

sorry for a delay -- I have just returned from Cieszyn, after
presenting Pd and cyclone to what turned out to be a gathering of
polish maxers.  Most of them seemed quite excited about a prospect
of rendering (parts of) their stuff cross-platform, but all
complained over tcl/tkish look and feel...

I did not deal at all -- any operation is performed in an
unbounded time.  That is mainly due to my old csoundish habit of
first precomputing or preloading function tables, then keeping
such `pool' in a more or less frozen state during performance.

What I would like to add to vexing in the first place is a sort of
explicit lazy computation.  But I want it simple, and it is really
unlikely that vexing will ever be granular, or even threaded
-- this is vasp's domain.

yes, even if it looks like a very tricky feature to design...
