Also, if the patch is to be linked from a web page
(link to a single Pd file) then most browsers can
associate the filetype and open Pd. This doesn't
work if the file is tarred or zipped so "just
make it a tar file" isn't really a satisfactory

The "more robust" way is to have everything
embedded inside the patch and have Pd handle

I've raised this idea before and I see no 
technical obstacles, since it's already something 
I do painstakingly by hand.

I second that.

A more robust way of loading "stuff" (from fx. an untar'd tar ball)  
would make a better solution. I.e. something that works in different  
distributions (extended, vanilla, etc), is independent from the  
preference and is not a shell script with a bunch of start up  
options. This rant/request might be utter rubbish though - please let  
me know.
