I think they (and the panel) simply have no clue on how to use Pd or 
Supercollider. While I understand that I think it's no excuse, at least 
for Pd they could ask people to send "self-contained" patches with 
instructions, I mean the patch could be very complicated but have just a 
big bang a big toggle and some markers/counters for the performers.

That said -- I notice that on the previously sent link the 
mention to Pd and/or Supercollider seems to have been removed.
