Well, GUI and code still *are* seperate when using looper and loader
as in the example GOP. Maybe even more seperate than now. I agree,
that GOPs can be slower, for example if you use a vu meter in them.
But the added flexibility and ease of (re)use for other users is worth
it, IMO.

Actually I'm searching for more generally (re)usable GOP abstractions
for a talk I'm planning for the next linux-audio-dev conference in
spring 2004.  The talk will be called "RRAD-ical Pd - Reusable and
Rapid Audio Development in Pd" and focuses on GOP abstractions. I
anybody's interested I could send a short abstract.

David McCallum is doing great things in this area, I did several
"RRAD" patches but in general there aren't that many useful and
reusable GOPs available. 

Or did I just miss them?
