My understanding has always been: m_pd.h is public and generally shouldn't change without some sort of compatibility coverage. Anything other .h is private. I wrote d_soundfile.h and s_net.h as private headers, but they could be included in m_pd.h to make them public for example. We could add commenting marking them as such.
