Both [list-drip] objects from a user perspective work exactly the
same, only that one is faster.  If you encounter a patch that uses
[list-drip] it's much better to have a slow [list-drip] than no
[list-drip] at all. 

On some platforms not every external etc. is available.  E.g. zexy is
not available in RjDj's Pd or in a plain vanilla install so you cannot
use [drip]. [list-drip] however can just be dropped into your working
directory and you can use it.

Abstractions and Pd builtins work everywhere, so they are the common
