The gui needs work - do you mean we need more/better looking gui objects?
When I was working on OS X, I couldn't really use very many gui objects at
once because of Apple's crappy closed implementation of tcl/tk; the lag was
terrible.  Pd devs can't really do anything about that (though it is a huge
problem).  A significant portion of pd users are on OS X.

Pd's gui definitely does need work, but without a clear roadmap it will be
hard to say what priority that is, right?  Watching that google talk has me
thinking about all kinds of things.
