a lot of patches people write a very specifically tied to their hardware 
config and designed for their specific aim, and as such don't have much 
general use posibility.  i (and i assume many others) have a few of big 
patches that i've done for various project that i wont give a general 
release since there is really no point.  if you are looking for patches 
to learn from others coding i'm sure some people would send them 
privately.  so yeah, the pd community is a lot larger than it looks by 
what is published for general reuse.
