hi Yves,

yes, splitting sys_gui()'s buffer into chunks, which are sent in
a separate thread, is likely the best way to go about sending data
to the pdgui -- so as not to interrupt audio by blocking on

Which is the important part.  There is also a less important part
I had in mind, that in order to make array redrawing _look_ smooth,
the actual communication overhead would have to be minimized.
