[PD-dev] svn structure

There are different core versions of pd: vanilla (miller's), devel,  
extended, desiredata.  Then there are all of the externals, docs,  
etc.  Pd-extended includes all this stuff as part of each release so  
everything is then added to the pd-extended release branch.  The  
externals, docs, etc. in the Pd-extended release branch then gets  
tweaks to make sure it all works well together as a package.

So if you want the whole tested, integrated Pd-extended package, you  
should use everything from the Pd-extended release branches.

Programs should be written for people to read, and only incidentally  
for machines to execute.
