[PD] Objects with the same name.

this has been a problem for a long time. for instance, the counter 
object, which is in GEM and also cyclone (i think). regarding that 
object specifically, Pd's library loading is case specific, right? 
perhaps simply renaming the cyclone max-style object from "counter" to 
"Counter" would be a nice idea? it's something i've been thinking 
about... it's a hassle!! i never know which "counter" people are using 
when i use their patches...
