Pd is still a beta-release 0(!).36, but still this idea sounds good to me,
plus a small setup-program where the settings are done (sound/midi-devices,
buffers, ...), self-installing to user-defined directory and coming with all
available externals, also including a renewed 0.intro.txt reference-file.
yes, yes, at least for all windows-users this would be a great feature...
