AFAIK there are pixes attempts to do it dyamically (i.e. using internal
messages, maybe there was an external involved ... let pix answer that
one) anyway -> http://pix.test.at/pd/nqpoly/index.html

hmmm good one, sometimes there's trouble sometimes there is none ...

that was pdgui by karl macmillan:
