Of course, not. Still, I - according to my personal judgment (I cannot
speak for you) - didn't read Hans as he would be claiming unjustified

No, I agree that giving a misleading impression should be avoided, but
the point (again) is that I still believe I didn't get any wrong
impression (probably I'm wrong here?). I must also say I haven't looked
at the code itself, but followed the commit history of Pd-0.43 and the
talks in the mailing lists pd-list and pd-dev. And my impression was
that some of what could be changed regarding pd<->pd-gui communication
was achieved, but it's still an ongoing process.

Interesting question. I haven't thought about what could help make Pd be
taken less or more seriously. Thinking about it, I feel that people
often tend to take something seriously for odd reasons, like if has a
'nice' interface, if it costs much, if prominent person XY has a
positive opinion about it, etc.
