thomas grill's dyn~ external is supposed to load objects similarly
(actually, i'm not up to date, if he only had the idea, or if he
actually implemented this ...

but delayed object creation does only handle the first bottleneck. when
more complicated dsp patches are constructed this way, the dsp chain
needs to be rebuild whenever the dsp graph is changed, which causes
audio dropouts if your patch has a certain complexity...
so this solution is not really scalable ... 

cheers ... tim
