Since the pd-externals Debian package is now defunct (last released  
in Sarge), I think we can safely clean up the 'flatspace' section.   
We could remove all objects from 'flatspace' that are currently in  
any of the libraries that are loaded by default in Pd-extended.

I think that will not break any backwards compatibility, except for  
people who have explicitly used [flatspace/myobject].  I am guessing  
that is very rare.

Anyone want to take this on?
