[PD-dev] Draft Templates for PD reference Files

How about a standard subpatch called something like [pd  
PDDP_META_DATA]?  Then the CATEGORY and KEYWORDS comments would go in  

I think they should be as tight as possible so that the help take up as  
little screen space as possible while keeping the important content  
there.  So for example, get rid of the "HELP: float" line, and just  
have the [float] line there instead.

We should also come up with standard links/subpatches.  For example, I  
don't know whether each help patch needs a [pd Related Objects]  
subpatch.  The all_about_* patches could have that info.  I think that  
the [pd More Info] subpatch is definitely not necessary, that would be  
in the all_about_* patch.  I think a better standard link to have would  
be float-examples.pd, with -examples being a standard extension.  There  
could then be an index of -examples.pd patches.

My vote is for 4 or 5.  I think 4 is a bit tighter, but 5 will have  
more room to link to other patches.

As for all_about_ patches, I think it should be a different format.   
The current two column format works pretty well, I think, with some  
fine tuning.
