That's true in nearly any piece of user-facing software.  But compared 
to other user-facing software, Pd seems to have a fairly large number of 
users with a working knowledge of C, building/compiling, etc.  Enough 
that I can think of at least 13 for whom there is proof just by what 
I've read from them on the user list.  But there are probably many more 
than that.
