the project is still in the concept stage, but it will be a topic for 
the PD convention in Graz.
In short words, it will be a shared library with a C-style API that 
acts as an interface to the PD system. It's built on top of the 
traditional API and i don't think that changes to PD are needed. It 
will manage construction, destruction, connection of objects and 
storage of associated additional data.
Just as with dyn~ the objects will live in a sandbox, they will not 
appear in the tcl/tk patcher system.

In dyn~ this is done with "proxy" objects that are connected to the 
objects of interest.
