I don't know how the programming of this would work but would it be 
possible to include these externals in pd but have an option like 
-noextern to keep the memory use low if needed and if one wanted to use 
a newer version of an external than the one included with pd the option 
-lib external would override the embedded external. Personally I'm quite 
happy with the way it works now but this suggestion (if its possible) 
would satisfy those who don't like including the externals each time.
