question for the deeply geeky :-)

how could PD benefit from running on a dual-processor machine under 
Linux? the latest offerings from Planet CCRMA offer a 
dual-processor-compiled kernel, for example, and Ardour [another 
free/opensource audio app] actually recommends one... one can always 
hope that the cpu-greed of the TCL/TK could be slogged off one processor 
along with the demands of the OS, while saving the other for pure DSP 

we can't let just the Mac kids with these new dual-processesor G5s have 
all the fun! ;-)
