Miller, do you think you could add the libs that come with Tcl/Tk to  
your included  version?  There are two folders called 'reg1.2' and  
'dde1.3' that should go into pd/lib directly, they come with Tcl/Tk in  
tcl/library/.  These will also be needed to support making a double- 
clicked file open in the currently running instance of Pd.  Really  
everything in tcl/library/ should be included so we have a full Tcl/Tk  

Yvan, it should also be possible to include the 'reg1.2' folder in  
your plugin folder for making a plugin that people can use now.  I  
think its just a matter of adding the local folder to the auto_path,  
so adding something like this to the plugin:

set auto_path [linsert $auto_path 0 \
	[file join $::current_plugin_loadpath "openrecent-plugin"]
