It's not that dyn~ is better, it's just different - it provides an easy 
way for in-patcher scripting, but for that it internally uses the 
current m_pd.h API.
The dyn API is far more general, it is a proposal for a C interface to 
replace this current PD API, but at the moment it's not integrated into 
the PD kernel, therefore needing much more resources than necessary. 
This is ok for smaller applications but not for larger ones, as a 
replacement for a patcher system would be.
However, you are welcome to use it and i'm happy about any feedback.

best greetings,
