Hah, then I'm wrong. If it's documented, it's canon! I honestly get lost in most of the internal messages and forget which ones are "public" and which aren't.

No, the regression isn't much different, it's more that things such as "dynamic patching" were never really intended form the start and became canon, to some extent.

>> I would also point out that internal messages such as pd-dsp-started don't really come with an expected behavior for user patches. Saying how it works is a "bug" belies that fact that I don't believe it was ever intended to be used for this and just because it can be grabbed via a [r] also doesn't guarantee anything.
