I'd be happy to help with something like this.

However, your description of the user/developer ratio doesn't ring true 
to me.  There's actually a surplus of developers and development 
energy-- I count two implementations of presets in the last year or two 
(in Pd-l2ork and the Chocolate et Coffee lib) which are in addition to 
however many already exist on svn and the Pd forum.

Furthermore, we've got a flag to make a Qt window pop up when starting 
the most recent git version of Pd-l2ork.  We'll incrementally be adding 
the functionality to create Qt canvas windows and draw patches in them 
side-by-side with a functioning tcl/tk gui.
