Quick addition: This also is the reason, why I rather try to avoid
using all the externals included in pd-extended in workshops. Actually
I'd prefer using only plain Miller-Pd there (which also is available
for OS-X 10.3, which many people still use). When learning to read,
you generally don't start with "Gravity's Rainbox" but rather with
"Dr. Seuss's ABC".
