it will probably give better latencies on osx than portaudio ... in
miller's branch, although i'm not sure, if it's possible to compile
pd/jack on osx... (iirc hans has been trying this ... didn't really
follow this, though)

in devel, it shouldn't be a big difference if you're running pd with
the changed scheduler, that's computing dsp in the audio driver thread.

cheers ... tim
