hmm, i don't fully understand your request:
hans just told you that [classpath] (an external) is basically the same
as [decalre -stdpath] (which comes with pd-vanilla)

so why don't you just use [declare]?
apart from the fact, that [declare] has a slightly more complicated
syntax and merges more or less independent functionality, it also has
some advantages: e.g. it is treated specially by pd (it always gets
saved as the very first part of the patch, no matter when you actually
put the object there; i don't think (but otoh i don't know) that
[classpath] can offer you the same)
