I've been giving some thought to that on the OSX side, mostly with
regards to the packaging system. I'm not sure what's the most convenient
way to make installable packages on the MacOSX side of things. Apple's
.pkg is attractive, but the current package format doesn't seem to be
very manipulable by the command-line.

Also--where do they go? The /usr/local tree (where I personally prefer to
put pd) is typically hidden from the user. It would be nice to be able to
put files in a place like /Library/Pd, where an ordinary user has the
capability to scre^H^H^H^Hmanipulate their installation in the finder.

We could emulate your debian approach--how does that lay out files for
externals (and their associated source, help, and other files)?

Also, regarding the CVS, are there any plans of a merge of version 0.36-
final into the CVS tree? (or, alternatively, giving me clear-enough
pointers that I could spend time with it and not screw it up?)
