[PD] writesf~ time to flush to disk…?

Hi folks,

The documentation for writesf~ states that:

	"You need not provide any disk access time between "open" and "start", but between "stop" and the next "open" you must give the object time to flush all the output to disk"

This suggests that once writesf~ has received a "stop" after writing to disk, there is no way to determine whether i) writesf~ is ready to receive another "open" or ii) the file written to disk is ready for reading.

Could an outlet be added to writesf~, outputing the number of samples written to disk?

The parent patch could then use this outlet to establish when writesf~ is ready to receive another "open".
