where would it go?

pbank is stable.
it was distributed by zack settle in the jimmies for years, and i use it since 2002 or 2003.

what lib?

when pd-extended or the cvs will be ordered to have directory like : 

etc, then pbank and other externals would fit there.
but now it's just an ugly mess. 
i don't think pbank add much to this mess.

i personally think it's time to start an other svn for pd-extendedV2, create a good structure, and copy code from 1st svn to the 2nd, without ordering by developer, but by functionality.
that's the best way to move i see, but of course that will create endless flame-war on the list.
