as long as name resolution hints are not stored in .pd files, any
solution is bad...

for now, it is simply impossible for external classes to
implicitly override internals.  External class may do that only
explicitly, through illegal hacks (such as matrix~ in cc do).

The only possible confusion is with help files loaded from a case
insensitive system.  Append, etc. should be corrected to block
that, perhaps.
