[sdiy] Mathematics of flanging

I think a lot of people when they see digital think 44.1kHz sampling and without any form of interpolation.  As you say there's no reason not to be able to generate any conceivable delay with a high enough sample rate and enough processing power.  
I can tune my physical models to better than 1 cent which is better than most people can hear.

I think you're going to have to clarify that a little.  You can make digital delays that go right down to a single sample and up to many many hours, and modulate them with absolutely no apparent stepping over that entire range.
