So you are saying if you install tkdnd, then the tkdnd features don't  
work in Pd-extended?

It would be very nice to have tkdnd built and included as part of Pd- 
extended.  Any interest in taking this on?  Basically, it looks like  
the best way to do it would be to import the tkdnd source code into  
pure-data CVS, then make it build and install automatically.   
Shouldn't be too hard if tkdnd is easy to build.  Certainly easier  
than making Pd build with Cygwin :D.
