I fully support your opinion in this debate. If I'd be in charge, I'd
fix it right away.

This thread lead to an idea. I'm thinking of  a Pdesafinado - a slightly
out of tune Pd, that has all constants slightly wrong and some less
significant bits flipped in the floating point format and other little
imprecisions and deviations. It'll make totally new pieces out of all
your existing patches. 

I'd try it out for sure, if someone comes up with this ;-)
