Then it makes sense to keep cyclone as a library, then take the  
generally useful objects like [prepend] out of the cyclone library, and  
add them somewhere else as individual objects.  This would make name  
conflicts much easier to deal with.  Miller talked at pd~conf about  
adding some of the cyclone objects to the Pd core.
