While the images look nice, I think that there shouldn't be too many  
things to make Pd 'pretty'.  To me usability is more important than  
presentability.  I think the best way to make Pd usable/presentable as  
a whole is to make it behave as much like a native app as possible.   
Tcl makes this possible.  I have started working on replacing the 'This  
window has been modified.  Close Anyway?" dialog with one that is just  
like that standard panel with "Save, Don't Save, Cancel" for MacOS X  
and "Yes, No, Cancel" (IIRC) for Windows.

Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to  
realize his wishes.
Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
