I think that the RRADical objects should go directly into "../extra",  
then there won't be all of these path problems.  Then for the overview,  
an all_about_rradical.pd patch could have everything outlined.  Then in  
every RRADical help file, there would be a link to  
all_about_rradical.pd.  This is the approach that the PDDP stuff uses  
and is what I did with my [hid] project.  I think it works really well.
