You'll be better off if you don't modify the package.  Then you can  
easily upgrade without worrying about tracking the changes that you  
might have made.  Instead, you should choose a folder to install your  
own stuff, and add your patches there.  Something like ~/Library/Pd/ 
extra and ~/Library/Pd/help.

Then they'll still be there when you upgrade your Pd.app.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of  
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an  
idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps  
it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into  
the possession of everyone, and the receiver cannot dispossess  
himself of it."
