Hey, pd People, :)

Having played with pd a bit, I feel some urges to hack on it. :)

What is the possibility of getting GPLed patches into the main
distribution?  I'm a struggling consultant and the idea of someone
making money off my volunteer work (by taking pd closed via the
Berkeley-style license) is unacceptable to me.

Guenter, what's your perspective on such questions?

I basically want opensource modular synthesis.  The three alternatives
I see are classic csound (not really an option since commercial use of
the software is forbidden), pd and quasimodo (GPLed).  Am I missing
any other major alternatives?
