hmm, i wouldn't do that.
i would make a patch on my pc (with pd-gui), but with careful design and
crafty tricks i would make the patch non-interactive (so that it doesn't
require a gui at all).

then i would load this patch on the dsp (without gui), and off you go.

as soon as you communicate between pd and pd-gui (in whatever protocol),
you will need your dsp-cycles for gui-updates instead of dsp-stuff.
