that's an interesting issue in general:

i guess the quest for a "single object" to perform a specific task stems 
from the idea that a c-compiled external is better/faster/less 
CPU-expensive etc. than a self-made abstraction.

is this even true for PD ?

(a long time ago i heard that this was true for MAX, but never quite 
figured out why)

or does it depend on the complexity/size of the task ?

would be great to hear an expert's opinion on that, as i often find 
myself caught in the same thinking (looking for externals instead of 
patching an abstraction), maybe totally unnecessary ...

thanks for all insights !
