as far as i understand, it is not possible at all to 'load' a
single-file-external without using lib, since it is shadowed by the
internal class, thus pd is never looking for it, since it finds the
internal class, that is already loaded. so you need to explicitly load
with '-lib' option on the command line, if you want to override the
internal class.
