It would be really awesome to have a pulseaudio driver in Pd-vanilla  
(and Pd-extended).  Could you port your portaudio driver to Pd  
vanilla?  That would mean that Pd would have easily working sound on  
most GNU/Linux distros, a big win for newbies and people who like to  
listen to music while patching.

I don't know if this is related, but your fellow Montrealer Patrick  
posted about pulse+libpd a while back:
