it is, see /externals/ggee/filters in CVS.. theres a helper object for most of the RBJ biquad types.. i also pasted his formules into a tk script, http://whats-your.name/pd/gui/filter.gif see /extensions/gui/ix/filter.wid. 

and no, i dont understand the math either, has somethign to do with rectangular-to-polar conversions i think (but for some reason at least in the commercial filter plugins which use biquad its never shown this way)..
