In the case of fluidsynth, this would make sense. I talked about this
with Peter Hanappe ad the LAD-conference, who proposed pitting fluid~
into the fluidsynth-CVS, but then we would have a dependency of
fluidsynth to Pd so nothing gets better. fluid~ might be one of those
cases, where the dreaded "1 external packages" makes sense.
