Arghh, right, I have to stand corrected. If the externals implement
the functions as static this problem is solved indeed.

Seems that the problem with the externals I tested was that these
functions were not static.

The setup functions is not a problem, because pd assures that the right
setup function is called by fetching it directly from the external.

This actually means that we have a namespace system implemented, we just
have to use it.

We have to adjust the loading of libraries though, because there it
doesn't work this way. .. well.
