I (of cause) can awnser that question, but say that i can't make work.

This is what i did for testing:

Made a folder in extra called test. In that i made an abstraction  
called testing.pd which was just a wrapper around a [print].

Then i made a new test patch which as:
[declare -stdpath extra/test]

Saved that. An loaded it again. But [testing] couldn't create. That  
is surpricing since it's what the help file promise.

But the odd things don't end here. I think. Check this out:

$ pwd
$ ls -l | cut -c 1-10,47-89
total 192
-rw-r--r-- README.txt
drwxr-xr-x bonk~
drwxr-xr-x choice

-rw-r--r-- rev2~.pd
-rw-r--r-- rev3~-help.pd
-rw-r--r-- rev3~.pd
drwxr-xr-x sigmund~
drwxr-xr-x test

Then consider that my preference .plist is empty. Ie. it doesn't add  
the folder fiddle~ to the search path. The odd thing is then, that  
the [fiddle~] object creates just fine anyways.
