that's true, after making the question I thought that mainly the most  
hardcore guys stick to pd-van, because it's easier for them to adapt it to  
their needs, and there's more tradition with self-programming (enhancing  
the core package). but I would dare say that for many  
non-developper-users, pd-ext is much more used than pd-van. pd-ext is a  
couple of decimals behind pd-van (and the windows version even more, as  
the disk for it is out of order since last summer), but HC doesn't have a  
grant to work on pd-ext.
