the topic mainlyy focused on ~/.pd vs ~/pd and i follow all the 
arguments back then.
however, what i really wanted to ask (and what i actually did ask; i 
only eventually got caught by ~/.pd and wrote a bit too lengthy on 
that...; however i did mention that it had been discussed before :-)) is 
why both w32 and osx have a .../Pd folder whereas on linux it is 
why is it not ~/pd ?

re-reading the entire thread from back then does not kindle the 
impression that any agreement was made for "~/pd-externals" (though 
there was agreement not to hide the directory)
