I find libraries are also very convenient because otherwise the number 
of objects becomes unmageable.
if you don't want to deal with .pdrc, you can make a startup script 

for i in `find $LIBS_DIR -name *.pd_darwin`
  export LIBS=$(basename $i .pd_darwin):$LIBS	

and later

pd -lib $LIBS

this allows also to organize libraries in subfolders (also usefull for 
objects and abstractions)
