but that is not a problem for pd-extended users (and I want to solve the 
pd-extended problems here), as long as you can overrule the global 
namespace with a local namespace.
pd-extended would provide a default object for every nameclash.
If you have old patches that were using objects, that are not the 
default in pd-extended you would have to add a declare to your patch. or 
explicitely call them as mynondefaultlib/abs~.
am I wrong?
