[PD] delay with feedback and clipping

A common delay problem. Suppose you have a note that lasts about one second, 
and you are processing it into a delay with feedback. 
The problems come when you use short delay times (about 50-100 ms) with a high 
feedback (about 80-90 %). As the note is superposed (mixed) lots of times, it 
produces classic digital clip distorsion [And actually, even if you repeat only 
one time the note, if the delay time is shorter than the duration of the note, 
you may get distorsion as well]. 
Is there a common method for controlling the occurence of this clipping 
(besides using [clip~]), or do I just have to tune the values empirically ?
