I've got a pd delay line (dline~) that I like quite a bit that requires 
no externals.  You can grab it from:

Only two parameters:  delay time and feedback amount.  I'm sure it's not 
without its problems, but it's probably usable (depending on your 
purposes).  The issues I know about:
1) Introduced noise when changing the delay time
2) Passed through input volume at 100% (probably need to introduce 
another parameter).

You can convert it to a looper by setting the feedback to 100% (1). 
Anyway, it's free and requires nothing other than pd, and 
feedback/complaints/patches are welcome.
