I didn't think you were rude at all. Note that I only used dynamic
patching in my zel~ example to implement minimized buffer sizes as was

But I also noted that I consider this a not very useful effort
(premature optimization?): Just make a delwrite that is big enough to
hold several samples and read from that. A delwrite with, say, 10 msec
should cover most uses of a z~ clone. z~ with delays of more than a
handful of samples normally aren't used as these tend to become more like
"real" delays, not like the filter-equation delays z~ was written for.
