What do you propose?  The built-in stuff is loaded first, so that will  
break patches that rely on [pow~] being the cyclone object.

This is a great example of why no libraries should be loaded by  
default, and instead the library configuration should be part of the  
patch itself.  If we can such a system in place before Pd-extended  
0.42, that will make the transition much easier.  You could just load  
'cyclone' before 'extra' in your own patch, and there would be no  
conflicts.  Yes, it will be annoying in the short run, but in the long  
run, we'll be better off.

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick.    -
