I'm not up-to-date with csound but I suppose it's not jackified... yet...  How 
about using csound~ extern for PD?  You can route audio in and out of csound~ 
and you can use multiple instances of csound~ (I belive) so you have all the 
power of PD, csound and optionally LADSPA plugins and (haven't tried them 
yet) VST plugins via the vst server someone has done...  You can run PD as 
jack client so all the other apps that Mark mentioned will run alongside and 
you can send midi data to other synths from PD, if you wish, via alsa's 
virmidi module.  Fluid synth is jackified, too but you can also use the 
fluidsynth~ extern in PD if you prefer.

Possibilities are endless.  Perhaps not as user-friendly as Reactor (I nver 
used it, mind you) but possibly more powerful.
