i don't understand. what is the "library" you are talking about?
the "special case" for the list objects is there use of ' ' (space) in
the names (the arguments to [list] define its functionality).
replacing the space with a slash brings (imo) the objects back into the
usual world, where the objects name defines the functionality.
i chose "/" as separator as it fits neatly into the libdir format and
allows to have "list" objects both compiled into pd and external (like
abstractions) to be used the same.

how do you compile internal objects as a libdir?
