Which has bitten me on the ass at least once when making music with
someone who uses pd-extended. Hans, I wonder if you could make it clear
to people who download pd-extended that it is incompatible with Pd, an
older version, and that it is bundled with many externals which aren't
in Pd by default?

Note that I really appreciate all the work you are doing to make people's
lives easier, and don't want to put a dent in your efforts. I just think
if we're not careful with breaking compatability people are going to get
very confused very quickly.
