i do use pd+jack+linux for a while now because jack offers great 
possibilities, but i guess low-latency realtime audio always has to be 
seperated from other functionalities to work smoothly.

i think that pd should be able to load a simple soundfile into an array 
without blocking for ages. also i think it should be possible to draw a 
line in a graph/array without making the whole application stutter.

there are workarounds and one can learn to avoid situations, but ideal 
would be a pd taking care of such things.
