this is an interesting question. it seems from my understanding that Miller 
has his own roadmap (hence pd 0.40 vs 0.39) and the development is not 
particularly 'open' in this sense.

i feel if there were some defined goals that everyone knew about then 
someone like myself could jump in and start programming something. but 
there doesn't seem to be such a roadmap, and so we put up with pd's 
'quirks' because there doesn't seem to be much point in fixing/changing 
them if our fixes/changes aren't going to make it into the next version 
anyway, since what is planned or desired for the next version is so closed.
