but wont this make patches much much less portable?  if you get used to 
using these flags, in order to tell someone else how to use your patch 
not only will you have to have a list of which externals you use, but 
also which individual objects you subsitute out on the command line.  
chances are it will come up that you wont be able to run patches 
designed by two different people (who have different substitution flags) 
at the same time in the same instance of pd.
