It was about how easy it was for *me* to write a quick drum machine in
ChucK (and some attacks on the manner I chose to present it). I
responded because his words carry weight in the Ruby community and I
wanted to put his ravings in perspective for people who know nothing
about ChucK.

Archaeopteryx and ChucK make an interesting combo, by the way. With a
little work you can get ChucK to auto-reload in synchrony with Arx (on
measure boundaries), and even close the loop with a minimal OSC server
in Arx (with rosc or something). I've used it to make controller
values available during rhythm calculation.
