Huh? Nameclashes have nothing to do with subfolders per se. A nameclash
is, when two objects have the same name registered in Pd but act
differently. Folders are a way to organize files in a filesystem

Yes, that's exactly what I mean: Many people would like every
objectclass to be global. OTOH many also want every object in CVS to be
available in pd-extended. The net result then is a lot of nameclashes:
You just cannot get zexy's urn and maxlib's urn loaded into the global
namespace at the same time without a clash. (Actually you cannot even
load them at the same time at all, IIR.)
