simple: timestamps and bundles.

if your sender application uses bundles and you can't change that, you are stuck with mrpeach.

i think practically all applications I've written that send OSC data (to Pd,...) use bundles (except for toy apps, or during class when I didn't want to get sidetracked).

if jitter is a problem (and often it is, if you are transmitting notes or periodically sampled data), you *need* timestamps.

I don't really like the timestamp implementation in mrpeach (as it uses real time, rather than logical time), but better this than nothing...
