ok, then it was a misunderstanding, I am also not saying that is has to 
be in the core of pd. (is there an official policy that objectclasses 
which can be created as abstractions should not be included as c 
but now, when I think about this...
why is there now pd-featured abstraction list?
counter would be an object that should be included in "standard 
abstractions folder".
or is everybody supposed to create his own version of useful 
abstractions over and over again?
