Messages already are faster than [block~ 1]. It's only the conversion
from messages to signals (and the other way around) that's tricky. 

However doing all signal processing at [block~ 1] even today is quite
a burden - and even an unnecessary one in many cases. Just try it.

metro handles float periods just fine. Try: 

 [metro 200.5]
 [t b b]
