Lots of people contribute, but I am the person who manages the  
releases.  Any help is welcome.  The path/import/declare stuff is  
currently a half-complete effort of Miller's and mine.

Basically up until recently, I was pursing Pd-extended as a proof of  
concept for building libraries as standalone binaries in directories  
instead of all compiled into one binary.  I think that clearly works,  
so now it is time to clean things up into a coherent package.

I document what I can here:

I don't really know what else needs to be documented.  One way to  
find out is when people start to contribute, then they find  
shortcomings that we can fill in.
