no its not.
the "barcelona" plugin is basicaly stripped down pd compiled into a 
plugin (so it is exactly what you asked for)

there are 2 other approaches:
- controlling a pd server via a plugin (javascript, java,....) or 
directly via xml-rpc; there are several sites out there that use this 
(afaik gollum.artefacte has a pd/pdp/pidip streaming server; pd-radio 
was of the second type)
- controlling a full-fledged local installation of pd via a plugin 
(iem's iARS took that road)
