i was talking about pd/pd-gui communication (and keep the number format 
for both saving and pd/gui communication the same).
when displaying/updating a table every single number is converted to 
text using printf, send over the wire and then converted back to a 
number for drawing the table.
it makes a difference if you have to transmit 44100
*4 bytes or 44100*12 bytes.
