If you use my k_guile external for PD, you can use common music
to control PD. You'll get clicks, though, because of guile's
garbage collector. But if you use two instances of pd and let one
of them do data with guile and the other do sound, you avoid the clicks.

Supercollider with http://www.alphalink.com.au/~rd/sw/scheme.html
might be a better alternative though. And my work with realtime clm
in rt-compiler.scm/rt-engine.scm in snd is probably a bit too
immature right now.
