An interesting question on the forum has me scratching my head here,
perhaps someone knows this?

"What's the best method to access to soundcard info and number of channels
from a PD patch? I try to explain... I'm comunicating PD patch with Flash using
OSC. How can I retry soundcard type, info, and number of channels from the PD 
patch and send to Flash app? Thanks a lot in advance."

So, is there a message that can be used to query the state of the audio
engine and return stuff like sample rate, channels?
