Let me add, that patcher systems make very good "glue" environments
Take something like VASP: It's a huge, C++ library, which in the end
is glued together by Pd. So Pd lets developers more or less ignore GUI
stuff or DAC/ADC interfacing, because that's what Pd does for them.

This makes Pd similar to scripting languages - although Larry will
insist that Guile is better at this for sure. ;)
