There are already a lot of pd patches (aka "programs written in the pd 
language") that implement some readymade synth. The step that most 
wouldn't dare to do, is the political one of asserting that one particular 
patch should be the first one to get tried.

Pd doesn't have to be usable by people who don't want to use it.

By finding what the word "EVERYBODY" should mean here, a lot of progress 
could be made.
