i have too much on my plate right now to rip all the portaudio out of pd and
replace it with straight CoreAudio calls.  but that's what someone needs to do...

there's not a single reason pd can't do the same - all it requires is a little
work.  pd desperately needs a few more OSX devs that know their shit.  we've got
the video down cold, and jamie is hard at work making tcl/tk less ass-tastic,
but some of the basic pd functionality still needs work.  nothing a little OSX
native code/APIs couldn't fix.
