this already exists however only for the built in pd objects .  it is not
done for externals i image because they are something that the user must
download and install on their own .  Rory Walsh has this implement .  He
posted here : http://iem.kug.ac.at/mailinglists/pd-list/2002-04/0565.html .
This feature has not yet been incorporated into Miller's download version of
pd .
I havent looked into how it was accomplished in the tk/tcl code , however
what would be really useful and extensiable is if the object menu was
populated by a text file that could be edit for the purpost of adding
extenal library objects to the list .
