that's of course true. but two details are against it:

- if you really know what you want, you'll want to design your own patch  
for that, and won't take any other already made programs

- but if you go for it, you'll spend your time programming the mixer,  
instead of the project you were thinking of in the first place.

I would guess that unless someone has a project with lots of time (enough  
time to program a nice complex mixer in between), it might be better to  
turn to another program, like ardour. E.g. and use my patch to control  
ardour, for example :)
Some programs can be very well integrated into pd, so it's not always  
needed to reinvent the window.
