most of them could be replaced with list-abs :)

i tested if [list2symbol] could create and reloaded a test patch with

did not create:
import zexy
declare -path zexy
declare -stdlib zexy
declare -stdpath zexy
declare -path  
declare -stdpath  

did create:
import zexy/list2symbol
declare -stdlib zexy/list2symbol

on osx 10.3.9 (it's an old cat) with Pd-0.40.3-extended-20071026.app

but again. i want to know the official way to load an external in  
pd-extended. who can answer this or where is it documented?

the readme says "By default, most of the included libraries are loaded  
at startup."

if import is the way to go what about all helpfiles, do they need to  
get updated in order to work?
