As I understand Miller's motivation, this option would only be for
things like developement. THis way you could test some changes to
builtin objects without having to recompile Pd all the time.

Currently we have another problem: That there are 2.5 parallel

could say, that currently Miller's version is the newest, this might
change again this weekend. ;)
