That's what I mean.

grrr, typo, change "is" to "and", to match what you had said before.

Let's wait a bit, there must be someone. However it doesn't mean we'd find 
that person right away... not even 2% of pd users write on pd-list. 
Personally I'm interested in rationales used in a feature acceptance 
process. It's not really a rhetorical question, because I'm really 
interested in answers.

If we compare pd-extended to how Debian/Ubuntu packages are structured for 
programming languages like Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, PHP, etc., then 
pd-extended would be a few dozen packages already.
