which works well for me too.
I'd also love to see a .pdrc, (or a for example a 'local.plist')
which was specific to the version of pd that I was opening, since I
usually have at least 3 - an extended version, a vanilla version plus
usually at least 1 version with a different Gem inside. It would be
great for packages streamlined for different tasks as well.
This could happen in a few ways, for example:
1/ check for a file inside the package
2/ check for a .plist in the usual place, but with a name matching
the name of the Pd.app package
eg if I have a package Pd-extended-autobuild.app then it would use ~/
of (or as well as??) ~/Library/Preferences/org.puredata.pd.plist
option 1 would be much cleaner in OSX
option 2 would allow for a very similar approach on each platform so
may be better overall. It would also be consistent with the approach
taken by vim, and several others, where behaviour depends on the name
it is called with.
