[PD] converting [pan~] from -45 - 45 to 0 - 1

I am writing a set of panning externals written in Pd that will have a  
standardized interface so that all of the pan objects use the same  
options, etc.  I plan on implementing a number different algorithms  
(equal power, linear, etc.) and have them all use 0 as left and 1 as  
right.  Also,  they will all have the requisite [line~] inside as well.  
  The idea is a set of complete pan control objects.

The problem is that the motex lib has [pan~] and [pansig~], both of  
which use -45 as left and 45 as right.  How much do people use these  
objects?  AFAIK, motex is not maintained anymore (perhaps it doesn't  
need to be).

Would it be a major hassle if these objects were deprecated, so that in  
future distros, you'd have to call the motex [pan~] by [motex/pan~] or  
set the -path option to include it?



Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to  
realize his wishes.
Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
