That is possible currently.  You can even have [prepend],  
[foo/prepend], [bar/prepend].  The help patches work too, if you use  
libdirs (i.e. each prepend will get its own help patch).

Could do that with some work, not too hard.  I plan on doing it for  
Pd-0.39.2-extended release.  Of course multi-object/single-file  
libraries won't work for this.  But such libraries are deprecated for  
the Pd-extended distro.
