i'm not a big fan of this (both a mapping file and a -rename flag),
since this _will_ make pd patches uncompatible to other machines using
the same pd version.
if we do something, let us better discuss small changes that make our
life easier so that we won't need a mapping file or a -rename flag.

that's the problem ... portability of patches should be our first
priority, the second priority is to be compatible to future versions,
but not neccessary to older versions...

cheers ... tim, who is really happy, that there is a discussion about
developing pd not about organizing development.
