because it will be eating all your memory and because there are (still)
unresolved nameclashes between libraries and because i (not being the
maintainer of any installer-packages at all) think that people should
have a minimum idea of what they are actually using on their machines.
in addition it has some extra advertising effect. i mean: just seeing
that something zexy is loaded is one thing; but when you ever bothered
to make it load you will remember it at least one pc-lifecycle and that
pays _my_ taxes...

is this intended to be pro or contra terminal ?
i mean, i am very happy with using the terminal and i will not stop to
start pd from my xterm just because it's gui has become fancy (it gives
me some feeling of control ;-))
otoh, you might feel like "i still have to use that shity terminal and i
was looking forward to the one-click installer, starter, registrar and
everything of pd for the last half decade)

like ben suggested: in the File->Startup section you have an interface
to the pd-startup properties. add the libraries you want to load there,
and probably some other flags.
