[PD-dev] loadlib1, loadlib2... vs. ordered loadlib

In the new pdsettings, the libs to load are currently listed with  
distinct arguments to represent order, i.e. loadlib1, loadlib2, etc.   
That makes it quite hard to add things to the preferences  
programmatically.  For example, if I want to use the "defaults" command  
in Mac OS X to add a library to be loaded, I'd have to parse the  
existing prefs file to know which loadlib? argument to use.

Is there any specific reason why a generic "loadlib" statement couldn't  
be used?  The order that they are listed in the file would then  
represent loadlib1, loadlib2, etc.  If I implemented this would it be  
included in the core?

this we should do freely and generously.
