This just doesn't sound workable to me.  Then you can never rely on an  
externals or even abstractions, since they might be an incompatible  
internal that comes along and overrides them.  The idea here is to  
make it possible to use objectclasses that are not included in Pd  
without having to worry about our patches breaking.

I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three  
meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds,  
and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits.      - Martin
