Very nice. I also have a recommendation to save a lot CPU: You should
consider to disconnect all GUI objects not used for input or
visualisation. E.g. in [pd quadr] you should remove all number boxes
and graphical bangs. 

For debugging you could connect them as a side path and later
disconnect them for performance.

So this is bad: 
  [f ]
  [0_\ <== numberbox

This is okay

  [f ]
  | \_
  | [0_\ <== numberbox

because it can easily made to be this best version:

  [f ]

The same applies to the graphical bang object: it's a performance
killer, too, if inserted in the patchcoord-path.
