i fully agree with having another pdrc-file that can be used system-wide.
e.g: our setting is a s follows: ew have tons of computers (with different
hardware) and tons of students (with "different software").
home-directories are shared between all the computers.
so it would ease maintainance if there was some system-specific pdrc-file (on
unix systems i would vote for /etc/pdrc or /etc/pd/pdrc) and user-specific files
in there home (btw: i always thought that there is some "home"-directory on
windows; at least there is some "Applications and Settings" directory (on
>=w2k); is this not available t opd somehow due to the "DOS"-mode of pd ?)

the users-preferences should overwrite the system defaults. (but why ? it just
makes more sense to me), but they should really be merged.

and being at this, we would like a command flag "-rcfile <file>" to solely use
another rcfile.
