well, my externals folder takes 14 Mb, the one from the extended version  
130Mb - in the iemmatrix folder (which was the initial subject) the  
original dll only takes 63Kb, but with all objects separated almost 2Mb.
To deal with name conflicts, keep track of what's installed and have  
always a reference I update the INTRO file after each install (here's a  
copy), or soon it won't do much to have so many objects, as at least I  
wouldn't be able to know who does what.

I really don't spend that much time, as I have a system for it (which has  
been lasting for a few years), so it's quite automatized. That's also why  
I can't change that fast, in case it might be necessary (which I try to  
I find a full-package of pd really great, but since I have the choice, and  
for now it seems that there are still a few differentes between both, I  
prefer to keep installing the original dll's (as long as someone keeps  
coding them). Anyway I can compare both versions and check out what I am  
still missing.


PS: H-C, sorry for the delay with the multi-mega version of gui-edit.pd -  
I have already aligned all variables, but need a couple of days of free  
time to just put it working and solve the GUI, etc.
