If you have a static patch where you don't need to dynamically add or
remove objects, building an external gui is fine and dandy. But Liam is
basically saying he isn't satisfied with the tcl/tk patching interface and
would like an alternative. As far as I am aware libpd doesn't have hooks
for adding, removing, and connecting objects. You can't build an
alternative gui. In my mind this is the most severe limitation of pd.

But I guess pd-l2ork addresses some of these issues? I know Jonathan has
done a lot of work on a node webkit gui for pd:
