thanks for clearing this a bit:

people constantly keep worrying that the objects won't be there if the 
corresponding c-file is not there.

pd does not read c-files. pd loads binary files ("libraries") that 
contain objects that have been defined in a programming language (like 
c) and have been compiled into the libraries.
there is *no* native correspondance between c-files and pd-objects.
some programmers might choose to create c-files corresponding to 
objects. others might choose not to do so.

thank you
(this will probably go into the zexy-documentation)
