isn't it the idea of the abstraction, that they behave as any other
object? if so, why do they need a distinction from other objects?

yo, but i think, that some additional info could be useful in general.
what about another entry, when right-clicking an object/abstraction,
that shows, where the abs/objects is coming from? 

right-click on [dirac~] would show:

zexy.pd_linux (in pd-vanilla)


zexy/dirac~.pd_linux (in pd-extended)




dirac~.pd_linux (if dirac~.pd is directly in <...>/extra)

is this possible at all?
