Yes, that was my comment on the sourceforge page. the problem is that 
unless the hexloader exposes an API that other language interface 
externals rely on, those externals have to duplicate most of the code of 

Compared to the existing load of copy-paste and of almost-copy-paste in pd

I'm happier when there is no excuse for more copy-paste.
