Yeah, but IMO one has nothing to do with the other. Just because a
pd-extended user would be forced to manage preferences manually doesn't
make [import] a builtin or makes everyone layout their patches and
externals as Pd-extended does it neither lets it [declare] work in
abstractions. So I don't see how a minimized set of libraries affects

Personally I don't care what pd-extended loads and what not, but *if*
minimizing libraries should be done, then I think no library should be
loaded at all besides [import].
