[PD] Is anyone using csoundapi~?

I use it frequently.  Can't specifically answer the priorities  
question, but my own experience is that it has never been an issue,  
ie., it runs as well as PD does in general.

Csound can be launched as an independent process and then, using its  
osc opcodes, can be communicated to in a similar way to the super  
collider client/server model, although personally I have found no  
advantage to approaching it this way.

On my own computer I have a custom build of csound compiled against pd  
0.40.3.  I can't tell you what version the prepackaged csoundapi is  
compiled against.  I've installed this version with various PDs on  
different machines and have never come across an incompatibility, so I  
personally wouldn't worry about it.

I don't believe that there is a better way to interact PD->Csound that  
the api object.  Client/Server over OSC is more trouble than it is
