i think this could work very well, especially if we are able to keep what 
we are doing in sync with Miller's continuing work on the Pd core, making 
sure we merge in his changes as they come about, so that the community fork 
does not end up out of sync with vanilla. patches built with Pd-community 
should function correctly when opened with Pd-vanilla, for instance.

the more i think about this approach, the more it makes sense...
