there should be no problem to find an apropriate algorithm to improve
the array drawing...
but someone would have to do it ... therefor it would be needed to set
up a todo list and to assign certain tasks to certain developers ...

as hcs wrote a short time ago, pd development is kind of "coordinated  

there are some of these "nearly-bugs" in pd that should be solved (and
not only by a workaround) ... 
probably it would be useful to install and use a bugtracker system
(maybe the bugtracker on sourceforge), but it would have to be _used_ to
be useful...

cheers... tim
