iirc, there is a technique described in millers book, which i don't
recall the name of, which is used to avoid discontinuities, when jumping
from one to another time point in an audio stream. this is achieved by
adding a ramp to the signal, that smoothes out the difference between
the samples at the jump. i used this technique to create clickless loops
with arbitrary length. i assume, it would also work for a
non-continuous, but clickfree changeable delay (without transposition). 

however, if jamie wants it to be continuous, then probably the technique
as shown in 3.audio.examples/I07.phase.vocoder.pd could be used, which
is very cpu-time consuming, though.
